I would rather somebody somewhat knowledgeable in IT to provide on- 
site support.  (For example, creating limited user accounts instead  
of granting full access, assuming that this actually works in Windows.)

The main use for LDAP is to have a common address book that contains  
all church members' addresses.

The current service contract is (IMHO) very much overpriced  
considering the quantity of work performed.  Indeed, I could actually  
do all of the work, but then I would get stuck doing support forever.
