that are convenient for the client.

1) Grant-Based Services: for services that are pre-written
into a grant. Fees are typically calculated at eight percent (8%) of the direct
(+) indirect costs of the total grant to derive an annual evaluation

as part of the grant, SSI will adhere to these terms. Payment of fees can be scheduled several
ways: either upon completion of a set of deliverables or on a quarterly or
monthly basis. SSI is flexible and sets
payment schedules that are convenient for clients.
2) Per-Diem Services: per-diem rates are established for
services that are short-term (e.g., one month to one year) and involve a
discrete, one-time set of activities. Fees are set on a sliding scale by type

convenient for clients.

long-term) that arrange for the consultant to produce a specific deliverable or

rather than based on a grant percentage or a per diem or hourly rate. Clients can meet their grant obligations

performed in-house. Deliverables may
consist of grant writing, report preparation, instrument construction or data

percentage, deliverable or per diem rate. This allows
clients to choose a service plan relative to the amount of funds designated for
such purposes. For example, if a client only has $10,000 available, they can
select a basic, no-frills option for this amount. Payment schedules are pre-arranged with the
