Since I offer
services at various levels of responsibility, various degrees of
urgency, and across many different disciplines there are several
tiers in my rate schedule.
you request that I travel to your location for a short term/short
notice visit there is a premium associated with that availability
and travel expenses will most likely be included.
If you want me
to head up a project and take responsibility for the performance
of a group, my rate would be higher than if you were engaging me
to simply perform circuit design or board layout.
I prefer to
do the majority of my design work from my own office. My expenses,
and therefore your costs, are lower if I can work from my own office.
If a project is large enough to warrant periodic visits to a clients
location for review purposes those trips will be negotiated at the
beginning of the contract and may be shared. There is always the
possibility of conducting reviews over the internet. If a client
requires that I work at their location there will of course be a
per diem negotiated at the beginning of the contract.
For these reasons
I have decided not to publish a rate schedule on this web site and,
instead, I welcome an opportunity to discuss your project in detail
so I can gain an understanding of the level of involvement you are
I assure you
my rates are not arbitrary. I do have a published rate schedule
that I will gladly share if you are seriously considering my services.
