PRICES/RATES FOR ALL WGS&A SERVICES

INHOUSE TRAINING RATE

We price our inhouse (at client site) training on a per day basis, not a per student basis, to encourage our clients to train more people for less cost than most training providers. All of our seminars are priced at the rate of $4000.00 per day of instruction, plus reimbursement at actual cost of all associated direct instructor and administrative expenses (travel, lodging, meals, reproduction, shipping, etc.). For the skill-building seminars, we generally recommend a maximum number of 25 students, as the intense workshops require the instructor to interact directly with each student during each workshop. For seminars which are informational, not skill-builders, any number of students may attend. The duration and recommended maximum number of attendees may be found on the detail page for each seminar. Each of our seminars has a substantial handout that will serve as a complete guidebook and reference for the attendees. Discounts are available if more than 10 days of training are booked. WGS&A will provide fixed-price training proposals only when the number of days, location, number of attendees, and prospective dates of training to be provided can be adequately specified, and agreed upon by both parties.

Please CONTACT us if you have questions, or are prepared to discuss a prospective training event.

CONSULTING RATES

WGS&A consulting or data modeling services performed at the client site are priced at the rate of $4000.00 per day onsite (no travel time is billed), plus reimbursement at actual cost of all associated direct expenses (travel, lodging, meals, reproduction, shipping, etc.). WGS&A will provide fixed-price proposals, if desired; the client must be able to help estimate and quantify the number of days of consulting service, number of trips to client site, location of client site, etc., so that expenses can be reasonably estimated. Discounts are available for consulting engagements which consume more than ten days of WGS&A service.

In general, WGS&A off-site (performed at our offices) consulting (e.g., review, evaluation, drafting, or preparation of client documents, models, designs, policies, standards, etc.) is priced at the rate of $350.00 per labor-hour, plus reimbursement at actual cost of all associated direct expenses (usually reproduction, shipping, etc.). WGS&A will provide fixed-price proposals, if the client can help to quantify the type and amount labor to be done. Discounts are available for consulting engagements which consume more than 80 labor-hours of off-site WGS&A services. WGS&A will provide fixed-price consulting proposals only when the amount and type of consulting to be provided can be adequately specified and quantified, and agreed upon by both parties.

Please CONTACT us if you have questions, or are prepared to discuss a prospective IRM/DRM or data modeling consultation .

WEB DESIGN SERVICES RATES

Our website design, construction, testing, evaluation, and maintenance (webmastering) services are priced at a general rate of $150.00 per labor-hour. WGS&A will provide fixed-price proposals if the size and complexity of prospective services can be adequately quantified, specified, and agreed upon by both parties. The amount of labor involved in the design, construction, testing or evaluation of a client website can vary radically, depending on the number of webpages, amount and type of content on each page, number of navigational links, and special features desired for the website (blogs, shopping carts, comment logging, required databases, number and types of dynamic features, stringent security requirements, search engine optimization, compatibility with and accessibility to different types of devices, amount of custom design and/or preparation of images or graphics, etc.). If a fixed-price proposal for design and construction of a new website is desired by the client, WGS&A uses a very extensive and structured questionnaire, with our client, to qualify and quantify each of these characteristics to "size" the job, create an initial specification before the actual design and construction begins, and to enable the preparation of a fair and accurate fixed-price proposal.

Please CONTACT us if you have questions, or are prepared to discuss a prospective web design engagement.
