Our Pricing Philosophy (more)

OpenSource values relationships over transactions.  We do not have standard daily or hourly rates – in part, because we very rarely engage in discrete, short-term, tactical interventions that can be measured in days or hours.  Rather, just as the engagement must be customized to each client-partner’s needs, the fee structure also must be customized to reflect the value and complexity of the deliverable as well as the budget and capacity of the client-partner.  If there’s a fit between your needs and our capabilities, if we are clear on the scope of work, and if we share a spirit of working in partnership, we are confident that we can negotiate a fee that allows both of us to be sustainable.
