atw: Re: Framemaker consultation fees

Hi Ross,

I set up a rates database earlier in 2003, at
www.textology.com.au/resources. It has plenty of entries from that time -
but they've dropped off a bit since because I haven't put a lot of time into
publicising it. Nevertheless a quick consult just now yields the following
results:
$40/hour on an agency contract (duration not entered)
$45/hour on a 6mths agency contract
$50/hour on a 12mth agency contract (nice!)
$60/hour on a 2mth independent contract.

rgds,
Tony.

Hello austechwriters.
 
I work for a software developer that bundles industrial automation solutions
primarily for the manufacturing sector. We are currently looking at a
significant overhaul of our documentation with the intention of moving off
the RTF/WinHelp platform, to a combination of Framemaker/WebWorks and HTML
Help. 
 
Part of the assessment process requires us to come up with estimates for
employing a contractor with extensive Framemaker experience who can guide
and assist with the migration process. Our scheduling suggests we'll need
such a person for roughly a 3 month period. 
 
I'd be interested to hear opinions on what we could expect to pay for such a
contract. Please don't start sending resumes, we have a long battle ahead of
us before we even get our hands on the software!
 
Regards,
Ross.
