F.A.QLet us solve discuss with your general issues
What is the difference between an Individual Contractor and a Consultant?
A consultant is an individual who is a recognised authority or expert in a professional field, with special skills or knowledge,Consultants perform result-orientated tasks of a temporary nature for which there is no continuing need in the Organisation and which the Organisation is unable to meet from within the staff.
An individual contractor is an individual engaged from time to time under temporary contract to provide expertise, skills or knowledge for specific task or piece of work against payment of an all-inclusive fee. The work assignment may involve full-time or part-time functions similar to those of staff members, such as the provision of translation, editing or secretarial/clerical and part-time maintenance services.
How do I initiate a project or obtain additional information?
The process starts by contacting us so that you can discuss your needs with a project coordinator. After this initial discussion, the coordinator will then assign a consultant (or team of consultants) to further define the scope. The assigned consultant will then follow up with you to get any additional technical details he/she may need in order to understand the project and estimate the effort required.Once we have a good understanding of the project and your needs, RCS will provide you with a formal proposal detailing estimated time and costs,project scope and a preliminary schedule. Once you have reviewed and accepted our proposal, we can begin work on your project.
What is the fee for your service?
Depending on the project and/or task, we charge a consulting fee on per project basis.Please note the following:The exact fee will vary based on the expertise sought, the location of the consultant and other relevant factors. Our fee structure is in line with what you would expect to pay for similar professional services.Regardless of the project, we will provide you with a written proposal outlining the costs. Work on the project can be initiated after
your acceptance of the proposal and the issuance of a purchase order.
How quickly can I initiate a project?
This depends on the project and the expertise required. In general and for most standard requests, we can have a consultant assigned to your project immediately. Requests that require a specific consultant or a fairly specialized skill set may have to be aligned with the specific consultant’s schedule.
What are the project deliverables?
In general, all projects include a complete and thorough report that describes our findings, analysis and recommendations. Depending on the project, other deliverables will be included as required. These deliverables will be defined in the project proposal or added in subsequent
modifications to the scope as the project progresses.
If I use your services, can you assure me that I will get the answer that I want?
We can assure you that our services and our deliverables will be complete and thorough. We cannot provide you with assurances that any analysis will yield results that coincide with your expectations.
