Client FAQs

WHAT KIND OF DOCUMENTS CAN I SUBMIT?
Anything associated with the research process: screeners, proposals, reports, discussion guides, surveys, stimulus, etc.

WHO ARE THE BIPOC RESEARCHERS REVIEWING MY REQUESTS?
Freelancers and contract researchers who are vetted through IIC’s onboarding process.

WHY WOULD I NEED MORE THAN ONE RESEARCHER?
Diversity and Inclusivity can be a moving target and can feel different to different people. It’s always best to get multiple opinions and prospective on anything dealing with inclusion to make sure you get it right.

CAN I CHOOSE THE RESEARCHER(S) I WANT TO WORK ON MY REQUEST?
No. However, all customers can input the parameters of the type of researchers they think would suit their project needs best based on experience, subject matter expertise, gender, ethnicity and more.

HOW MUCH ARE THE RESEARCHERS PAID?
Researchers receive 80-90% of the fees paid by customers. The remainder covers fees to keep portal functional and operating. 

WHAT ABOUT CONFIDENTIALITY?
Along with IIC’s onboarding and vetting process, all researchers must sign IIC’s confidentiality and terms & conditions agreements before being considered for hire. In addition to that, all clients have the option of uploading their own confidentiality agreements into the portal. Researchers can not work on anything until all agreements are submitted.

HOW LONG IS MY INFORMATION IN YOUR SYSTEM?
All research request documents will be deleted after 30 days from the date of completion.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER SUBMITTING A REQUEST?
Researchers who receive and accept your request will add notes to the documents you submit through the portal and send them back to you. If needed, they will message you in the portal for further detail.

WHAT HAPPENS IN A CONSULTATION?
Consultations are set up for customers seeking live, one-on-one conversations with the researchers working on their projects. This can be for a duration of 1 hour or one month depending on your needs.
