Fees and Expenses

We will be happy to offer a proposal for a project on the basis of a flat fee and within a fixed time frame if the scope of work is clearly defined. This approach works well with certain writing projects such as white papers.

Alternatively, when the task is open-ended, we charge a per diem fee plus actual expenses (time and materials).  The daily rate is reduced for clients who enter into a retainer agreement for an extended period.  Please inquire about a program to fit your needs.
