    There are a number of flexible rate arrangements available to clients wishing to utilize BRITE’s services.

    Direct Clients (i.e., end-user companies contracting directly for Britehead’s services) have has a choice of fee structures; hourly (time and expenses/materials), firm fixed price or benefit/ROI-sharing structures are available.

    Hourly rates for service delivery staff typically range from $50 to $150 per hour depending on the skill type and seniority. Hourly rates for project managers and strategists typically range from $75 to $150 per hour. Discounts may be available for public and non-profit organizations, as well as in cases where BRITE undertakes projects of a particularly strategic nature. Expenses are typically billed separately unless an “all-inclusive” arrangement has been agreed to.

    Firm Fixed Price (FFP) arrangements are available in cases where the scope of the project is well understood and agreed to by both parties. In the majority of cases, we recommend that prior to initiating a FFP project, a short “scoping” engagement be performed on a time and materials basis in order to define the project scope and develop the FFP estimate. Milestone/progress payments are usually agreed to at clearly established points along the project lifecycle based on Earned Value Analysis. As BRITE assumes a higher level of risk for FFP arrangements, a correspondingly higher total fee structure can be anticipated.

    Benefit/ROI-Sharing arrangements are available in cases where the scope of the project is well understood and agreed to by both parties (similar to FFP), and where a reasonable estimate of the benefit to be achieved is both available and quantifiable in terms of dollars. In the majority of cases, we recommend that prior to initiating an ROI-Sharing project, a short “scoping” engagement be performed on a time and materials basis in order to define the project scope, estimate the dollar benefits, and develop the project proposal. Milestone/progress payments are usually agreed to be paid by the client at clearly established points along the project lifecycle based on Earned Value Analysis. These progress payments are typically lower than with FFP projects, since much of BRITE’s compensation for the project will based on dollar benefits achieved, which are not known until after the project is completed. However, as Britehead assumes the highest level of risk for ROI-Sharing arrangements, a corresponding total fee structure can be anticipated.

    Third Party Clients (i.e., brokers, staffing firms) are contracted on an hourly, nonexclusive basis (Britehead will reserve the right to engage multiple Direct and/or Third Party Clients). Hourly rates for service delivery staff typically range from $50 to $150 per hour depending on the skill type and seniority. Hourly rates for project managers and strategists typically range from $75 to $150 per hour. Discounts are generally not available for Third Party Clients without a volume/term agreement. Expenses are typically billed separately unless an “all-inclusive” arrangement has been agreed to.
