If the evidence needs to be re-weighed for verification, challenge, etc. it could also be done, in which we will have to travel to have it weighed.  As for flight reservation, car rental, etc. these can be done either by your organization,  or we can do it for you.  If you opt for the former, please submit the itinerary through mail, email, or facsimile.  Likewise, if you choose the latter, we will notify you of the additional costs. In any case, please give us a lead time of at least 2 weeks to make sure there are no time conflicts.
