This may be a bit late in the development process to include this as an option, but I think the "Buying a Contact" element of Shadowrun 4th Edition would be perfect here and encourage and empower the players to help direct the game story. The way it works is fairly simple.
Buying A Contact?

That's a good idea. And at this point it's definitely too late, but that would have been a good talent for a politico or scoundrel.

I like the idea as well, and something like that could be added in a later supplement (or the later games), but nothing is stopping you (or anyone) from adding it as a home brew option. I would be ok with that as well in my game.

I could also see this as a gaming session-based contact where you could spend a FP(s) to aquire.

Thanks for the input fellas. I've decided to incorporate this into a future game (after we've gotten playtesting out of the way) but I'm leaning towards credits and FP expenditure as the method of "paying" for the contact.
