Typically for small jobs (under $1500), I provide a statement of work and estimate which the client will need to sign. (See the sample work agreement here).  Generally an Advance Payment is required — and this will be specified in the initial work estimate. For small jobs, a statement of work is made free of charge.

For larger jobs,  I may require  significant time to analyze your document & business needs.  For such cases, I typically charge an initial consultation fee (generally $50-100) and provide a combined statement of work and documentation plan.

I am available to work in a variety of work arrangements. I can provide a needs analysis, documentation plan and work description.
