CIRR does either project based or time and materials based development.

In project based development, the customer provides a Statement of Work, outlining the work desired, and CIRR returns to you a quotation for doing that work. The quotation, if agreed to, is all will be paid to get that project completed (as specified in the statement of work.)

In time and materials based development, you hire CIRR for some number of days/weeks/months, and CIRR bills on an hourly basis for the work performed. Standard hourly rates for various duration contracts are below. (these assume work in/from the Dallas, TX, US area.)

Of course, all rates are subject to negotiation.

Duration Hourly Rate US$
less than 3 weeks $150.00
3 - 6 weeks $125.00
6 to 12 weeks $110.00
12 weeks to 6 months $95.00
greater than 6 months $70.00
