Each Provider organization will be responsible for the selection, training, scheduling, and quality assurance of a team of in-field LEED for Homes green raters. Submittals are due to USGBC by 5 PM EST on Friday, November 14th , 2008. Submittals that are not complete will be disqualified. Submittals will be reviewed upon receipt.
