EXPENSES:

RETAINER ARRANGEMENTS:
For the client who needs a few hours per month on a regular basis, we offer consulting on a retainer basis.

The advantages include reduced hourly rates, reduced special project bids, and priority consideration. The client pays a flat monthly rate which includes a specified minimum number of hours per month, with excess hours billed at the discounted hourly rate. For example, 8 hours a month, normally billed at $125/hr, would run $600/month on a retainer agreement. Services covered by retainer include regulatory work, telephone troubleshooting, improvement of current formulas, qa/qc specifications, mixing equipment recommendations, etc.
