This introductory job is to merge seven versions of a six-page MS-Word client contract into one, replacing version differences with optional or situation-specific sections. Current versions do not differ significantly in content, but language needs to be correctly managed to make the result coherent and useful. If successful, I will follow this up with a larger project to rewrite this contract as an MSA with SOW's or Addenda to address specific services. Our end goal is to push our contract through Docusign and use collected information to populate Salesforce. But I'm getting ahead of myself... I will award this job to multiple people and compare results, with an eye toward building an ongoing relationship for additional contract review.
