Weekly; also upon reaching each Milestone (each Milestone is reached by the end of a corresponding Phase listed in the SOW).
Weekly, during the normal business hours of the Client; the particular day of the week is TBD.
Most often, our bid is a fixed price for the entire project, including discovery, prototyping, development, testing & QA, acceptance testing, deployment, training, 90 days of free warranty support. The quoted fixed price is contingent to having no change requests from the client to the pre-approved Statement of Work. So, the price would not vary based on the actual time spent by Velvetech in a course of the project. However, in case when a change that is requested by the client causes an increase or decrease in the cost of the system development or the time to reach any milestone, Velvetech will notify the client in writing of such increase or decrease in the cost or the time required within 5 business days of the charge request receipt. To effect such change, the parties shall agree on an equitable adjustment in the cost and milestone schedule, and shall modify the pre-approved Statement of Work as required. Velvetech will not implement such change without the client’s written authorization.
