What’s the contract look like?
It’s a standard subcontractor service provider agreement with a statement of work detailing services to be provided. Typically when this question is asked they are saying how long is the contract? It depends, we have several options:
- One year with 30-60 days written notice to terminate depending on type of service
- 6 month contract with 90 day renewals
We find that the 6 month contract is usually the best option as we’re hitting stride between 4-6 months. That’s typically 80-120 hours worth of work or 2-3 weeks for a full timer and in most cases we’ve already closed business – government work can take longer.
