Pricing

Don't you hate it when you have to sift through pages and pages of  vendor's website to try and get some idea whether you are even in the ballpark for affordability, and then you still have to make an appointment with the sales reps ? And then they still give you this fog.  Of course there are some basic terms and conditions, but I hope you'll agree that this is a very clear rate sheet.

Please - sometimes technology doesn't treat us the way we'd like. If you experience ANY difficulty ordering on this page, or you just prefer to speak with a human person, please leave a message and you will get a call back within 24 hours, or call me at 202-314-5199.

In order to assure you that your payments and your financial information are secure, all our payments are processed through PayPal. If you are paying by credit card, you do not have to have a PayPal account; you can use your card as a Guest. Once your payment is processed, PayPal sends a notification email and we will contact you promptly to get your service started.

Charter Member Discount

The pricing below includes a major discount for FY2020 Charter Members.

  • If you purchase a listed service during Fiscal 2020 (Oct 2019 to Sep 2020), you will retain the same pricing through 2021.
  • You must agree to provide attributable feedback (written, email or video) when the service is complete. Some organizations are reluctant to do this; your input can be anonymized to "Jane D, financial services industry, Tacoma WA". [Sure, a CPARS entry counts]. If your organization will not permit even that, or you don't provide it, then the price is increased by 33% and you will receive an invoice for the balance 30 days after the service being completed.

Pricing notes:

  • Charter Pricing: Pricing shown reflects a 25% discount offered during the company's early years of offering the services. The discount is conditional on customer agreeing to provide attributable (partially-masked) feedback on their experience of the offering. Should such feedback not be received within 30 days of the completion of the service, an invoice for the balance will be sent.
  • Firm fixed price: All offerings on this page are firm fixed price, paid up front as part of the credit card transaction. Fees and terms for larger consulting efforts will be as negotiated. 25% of the price accounts for setup and the initial planning/scoping/orientation and is not refundable.  The remaining 75% of the purchase price can be refunded if services are cancelled up until 5 days after the initial planning or introductory call.
  • Federal discount:
    • Jump-Starter workshops are reduced to Federal GPC maximum for micropurchase transaction
    • 6-month Strategic Subscription cannot be treated as 6 separate micro-purchases.  You would have to obligate the full $10,800, which is discounted to $10,000 for full  one-time payment.
  • Simmer System(SM) workshops are less expensive because the material is already in place. It will not be customized g for the workshop other than minor tailoring to the environment and handling Q&A. [Find out more about the various types of Simmer System workshops available].
  • 6-month Strategic Subscription.  The total monthly fees of $10,800 are discounted to $10,000 for full up-front payment.
  • 6-month ad-hoc advisory support. This is paid for up front and, since it is priced at $3500, Federal agencies can buy this package as a micropurchase on GPC.

Well, OK, there are some administrative details (travel, late fees, etc.); here's the scoop on that.

For government agencies or prime contractors who would like to use us for larger-scale engagements, we are a Virginia-based SDVOSB (Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business).

I know a corporate purchase may require a lot of dotting the i's and crossing the t's. I've tried to be as specific as possible, but there always something! If you need  more information about the offerings, please contact me.
