Sounds promising.

Okay, even better.

In terms of the next step,

1. In terms of discussion lets keep it on this list (if necessary you
can act as the go between :))
2. If you could get some sample excel files, upload them to google
docs, and then share them with this list, that would be great.
3. We collaborate on loading that data into WDMMG data-store (either
the main data.wheredoesmymoneygo.org or your own one).
4. We take a look and decide what to do next.
