I am happy to work with you to define a scope of services at no charge, except for travel expenses reimbursement if required. Once a scope of work is finalized, I will provide a written proposal detailing the scope, the schedule and the cost. If the scope is sufficiently well-defined, I will do the work on a fixed-price basis; otherwise, it would be on a time-and-materials, not-to-exceed basis. Once you have accepted my proposal, I will offer a Professional Services Agreement for our mutual signature. No charges accrue until an Agreement is signed by both of us. Projects are invoiced monthly, based on either percentage of work completed (fixed-price contracts), actual labor and expenses incurred (T&M, NTE contracts). All invoices are accompanied by detailed project status reports so you are always aware of the status of the project.
The company was founded in 2005 to give composters and others access to qualified professional consultant assistance. Since then, I have completed over 300 projects in 21 states and five countries.

I understand that cost control is critical. It's hard to justify hiring an outside consultant for $200/hour when you're making a product that sells for $20 - $30/CY. I charge reasonable hourly fees and charge only for those expenses directly attributable to your project, such as travel (direct costs only, not for travel time), project supplies (like laboratory analysis fees) and subcontractors (if needed). I offer extensive professional support for less cost than most consultants. One of my goals is to work with you to ensure that your scope of work is clearly defined and that my support is always cost-effective and affordable.
