How is the job quoted? What type of models do Engineering Services companies work under?

The two main types of models are

  1. Fixed Bid - A 'not to exceed' estimate is given for the Project. Once the customer approves this, the project is executed and invoiced
  2. Time & Material - This is used in the case of longer term projects where there is fresh information being shared on a daily basis. It is not uncommon for Clients to set metrics on the utilization of resources you are paying for on a T&M mode.
