I have a doctorate in philosophy from Fordham University. I worked for 10 years as a web application developer writing code in PHP (generally object-oriented) and working with MySQL (moderately normalized database design) to deliver HTML/JS/CSS. I used to answer questions on EE and had a reputation of about 500K there before I became disappointed with their model. I presently work at a University in Japan.

comment difference between 持ち込む and 持って来る?
@snailboat it has a definition here: ejje.weblio.jp/content/%E6%8C%81%E3%81%A1%E6%9D%A5%E3%82%8B though no examples... So presumably it exists somewhere. The definition makes sense to me if we view it is as "I will go get ~ and come back" (持ち as 連体形 + くる). But I've never seen it anywhere so I assumed OP was making an error in transcription

もちくる does exist, but the two expressions in the title (and the newly edited version of the question body) are much more common.

Note the different in your title and your body もちくる vs. もってくる. Those are grammatically different.

comment How do you say there are “x” number of days until some event or something?
@Rilakkuma I think both appear with about equal frequency, because you can think of it as either an interval or an ordinal in this context.

if you go to www5.cao.go.jp/keizai3/getsurei-e/2014aug.html, you can see what I believe to be the government's published translation of the document you are getting that from.

comment Can you show any examples of a 兼務発令書 in English?
I have an 委属依頼文書 which is a similar document, but it's in Japanese. Our university doesn't do much in English.
