Reasons For Hiring a Technical Consultant

* You only need someone intensively for a limited period of time, or you can't justify a full-time professional.

* You want to maximize the speed and responsiveness of the technical expert on your project.

* You want to minimize overhead costs such as offices, liabilities, employee benefits, and non-productive time.

* Your project requires special expertise that is quite rare and it takes longer to develop than you are willing to wait.

* You would like another opinion on a crucial matter.

What To Expect From Your Technical Consultant

* Your consultant should provide an objective evaluation of your problem and technical goals.

* Your consultant's efforts should remain focussed on your needs, not his, and only in those areas of interest to you.

* Your consultant should keep you current on progress without becoming bothersome.

* Your consultant should deliver a complete design package including recommendations, drawings, schematics, costing, schedule, vendors, research literature, procedures and all other documentation necessary for you to implement the design.

* Your consultant should be readily available for any other follow-up or support work.
