Custom Programming

Note 1: Major custom programming projects require an initial consultation (at no charge) to determine scope of project. A detailed quote will be created (at no charge) to list all aspects of programming project. The quote will include a "Not to Exceed" price which is based on a projected hourly rate. If programming takes less time than originally quoted, the overall price will be reduced accordingly. Experience has shown that it is almost impossible to understand and document all requirements at the beginning of a project. Careful planning can minimize changes, but the very practice of developing custom tools can create new ideas for their use and/or new requirements. Therefore, changes may occur during the software development project. Any changes requested outside of the original scope of the project will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. If the request does not cause any additional programming time, the change will be documented and incorporated into the project. If the request causes additional programming time, a new quote for the specific request will be submitted for approval, prior to any changes to the original scope of the project. I make every attempt to calculate accurate hours, but sometimes tasks take longer or shorter than originally planned.
