Estimates and Billing

We provide proposals and estimates before the start of any project. Signed approvals are required before production begins.

We keep clients aware of progress against estimates and send a final invoice at the end of the project for your records. The CALS Communications business officer processes invoices via interdepartmental transfer (IDT).

Note: Changes in project scope may result in additional fees and adjustments in the timeline of deliverables.

Rates

Standard Rates

We apply the following flat rates for services we complete in-house:

  • $75/hour – most services, except video and photography
  • $80/hour – video production
  • $70/hour – photography (this service is provided in collaboration University Communications)

If the project requires the use of external resources, we will provide advance notice and cost confirmation before initiation.

Rush Rates

The rush rate is 1.5 times our standard rate. Rush rates may be applied in instances when we must rearrange schedules that result in weekend or overtime work to complete the project. Video and photo projects scheduled during the weekend and after-hour periods (8 a.m.-5 p.m.) will automatically incur the rush rate. We will notify you in advance if a rush rate applies in other circumstances.

Printing and Hard Goods 

Printing and hard-good costs are priced separately. For these items, we obtain competitive vendor bids to ensure the best value for your budget.
