It is important for clients to understand that when contracting research services, there is no guarantee that the needed supporting records exist or are accessible. However, the research undertaken for each client is planned and executed as efficiently as possible. Compensation is for the researcher’s time spent in the search as well as in the analysis and reporting of findings.

*Each individual expense exceeding $20 is supported by receipts, provided at the time you are billed. Expenses for travel requiring overnight stays are always pre-approved by the client. Travel expenses, which can be shared by two or more clients requiring research in the same area or facility, will be conducted whenever possible to reduce each client’s billed expenses.

**For trips exceeding 1 hr. round-trip travel time, travel is billed at the hourly rate but no mileage charge is billed.



A retainer of 50% is required with each contracted research, writing, or publishing engagement.

Instruction and lecture services require a 50% retainer, which may be waived in lieu of a properly executed, institutional purchase order.
