IBESR has reopened

I am so sorry that I didn't get this posted sooner, but IBESR reopened on 16 August 2012 and took in new dossiers.  We were all surprised because the staff had told our lawyer that it would not be reopening until sometime in September, but as with most things in Haiti, timelines change.

So several dossiers were turned in at the end of last week and more are being readied to go in in the next couple of weeks.  We have until middle of September to turn in dossiers before the new policies take effect.

Here is the schedule for IBESR at this time:

1. Timing



From August 16 till September 30, 2012

Delivery or renewal of agreement to orphanages (children’s homes) for the year 2011-2012
