The initial consult is free of charge. Consults within the Harvard system are billed at $160/hour after an initial meeting to discuss your project. Consults for external academic institutions are billed at $187/hour and consults for our industry partners are typically billed at $265/hour. Our industry rate may be lower depending on volume of work. We will provide you with an estimate of the number of hours required, a quote and a start date as part of our Memorandum of Understanding (PDF). During the project you will receive detailed monthly billing updates and ongoing analysis results via our project page.
