Contractors will be required to attend a training meeting to learn how to install and service the Client’s insecticide application and delivery system on planters. DCI reserves the right to require the attendance of any contractor for training(s). Field Technicians will receive work assignments from the DCI dispatching team on an “as-needed” basis. Contractors will be required to contact the Client’s growers/customers by phone and schedule an in-person appointment to install the system and collect any further data as required by the Client regarding the grower’s use of Client’s products. Technician must be able to schedule and manage time efficiently, and dedicate full time and attention to completing an install once it has started, in most cases requiring two consecutive days. Contractors will also communicate with Client’s growers/customers in season on an “as needed” basis for service assistance.
Contractors will report appropriate service needs and information to the service team. Contractors will submit all requested, pertinent project information in a timely manner
(once daily is preferred) on the provided web-based DCI database. Database training will be mandatory and provided by DCI.

Contractors will be required to provide their own basic shop tools (wrenches, pliers, socket set, electric drop cord, marking pens, etc.) and appropriate clothing needed to install and service planters in a safe and efficient manner. Contractor will not handle insecticides.

Additional Requirements:
1. Cell phone (smart phone preferred) with voicemail capabilities
2. Dependable vehicle
3. High speed internet
4. A personal computer with Windows 2000 (or newer operating system) and Internet Explorer 5.5 (or newer).
5. The capability to open and read Adobe .pdf files
6. Must have an e-mail account and availability to send/receive e-mail daily
7. Printer/scanner to print files that have been received as an e-mail attachment and capable of scanning documents to send as an attachment via email.
Contractor Compensation:
Contractor will be paid an hourly wage.

All reasonable and necessary expenses directly related to the completion of the service activities will be reimbursed, including but not limited to: mileage at the current IRS rate,
postage, lodging, long distance phone charges, airfare, etc. Contractors will be provided training on how to properly enter both time and expense reports through the DCI Contractor Corner portal. Overnight stay requires pre-authorization by DCI. DCI will apply the DCI Travel & Expense Reimbursement Policy to determine whether the expense qualifies for the reimbursement.


The timeframe of this project is estimated to begin with an in-person training meeting, with on-farm installations beginning once training is complete until planting season
commences, followed by a period of phone communication and on-farm service assistance during planting season.
