CheeseSlice is a permanent contractor
I'm not a BA, but I'm familiar with what they do as I often work with them and rely on them in some cases to get my own job done. I can't imagine the IT world without them really.

It'd be interesting to hear from any BAs how the trade has been affected by offshoring. My own theory is that BAs have always needed to be close to business, and their local knowledge (laws, business practices, geography, etc.) and command of the english language is going to be vitally important for the BA and the client co.
