I'm launching a company that will publish business intelligence reports that will written by various authors. I've written guidelines for authors (incomplete draft attached; final will be about 4,500 words) which will be given to the teams that will be writing the reports.

The final version will be provided to the contractor by 4 PM EST on Friday, July 6.

I would like this guide to be proofread and edited (as necessary) to ensure that there are no mistakes and that the language is clear and professional.

Editing is to be done in Word using the track changes function. A call / Skype / chat can be arranged before the work begins to clarify any issues.

The company follows the OECD Style Guide (  [obscured]  /dataoecd/8/39/40500006.pdf) which calls for British spelling conventions.
