Q: How does Horgan & Associates structure its compensation?

We often begin an assignment with a review and diagnosis of problems. We draft a scope of work based on the preliminary review and our understanding of the task or tasks at hand. Once that scope is finalized with the client, we offer a not to exceed fixed fee for that work. From our diagnosis, depending on the nature of the solutions proposed, additional work can go forward on an hourly rate, a fixed fee, or a percentage of cost if project related.
