"DON'T WORK HARDER. WORK SMARTER."
I have been told that the key to working in smaller organizations is to work smarter. That means to me, that I have to find ways to get more done in the same amount of time. One way to do that is to get help. Not permanent new hires, just someone to get you through a work influx. Or to have that one test done for you instead of buying a whole new instrument. Or to have someone with expertise in an area that you do not currently have but want to include in a package. If this sounds like your current situation, consider us as an option.
Baere offers a number of ways to access our resources. We can offer you a flat-fee retainer with a statement of work, a standard contract with funding gates, a per hour rate, or a package quote with ala carte options. We also offer discounts for educational institutions and small businesses. And we can provide you with client references, just ask.
If you would like to be able to pick up the phone and ask a complicated question or have someone to run data to ground without worrying about repeated invoices or keeping track of minutes, this may be the best option for you.
Working with your specific needs and requirements, Baere will prepare a flat-fee statement of work fully describing what services will be provided, how invoicing will be submitted and not-to-exceed parameters.
Examples of items that your statement of work might include:
Liaison activities with government, industrial, and academic organizations
Representative attendance at professional, technical and informational meetings
Preparation of white papers on data
Phone access for technical questions
For single, well defined projects with a relatively clear time requirement, you may find that a straight per hour contract is best for you.
Contracts will be prepared with a fully described statement of work and not to exceed parameters.
Standard hourly rates are $243/hour for technical activities and $175/hour plus expenses for meeting attendance and training.
Reduced rates are available for educational institutions.
Examples of projects that are well suited for a per hour contracts:
Failure analysis, data collection, data review
Single meeting attendance
Low frequency telephone support
ALA CARTE PACKAGES
When preparing a quote, developing a budget or preparing for a project, it is useful to be able to pick and choose tasks and activities that support your project. In that case, an ala carte package with a variety of services tailored to your needs with expected timelines and costs is going to be the best choice for you.
This option mixes the development of a planned cost with the flexibility of a per hour rate.
