Commercial Contract Templates
We offer flexible custom software development services on either a Time and Materials (T&M) or Firm Fixed Price (FFP) basis. Below, you will find information on each contract type along with our contract templates for review.
Time and Materials Contract Templates
Our T&M contract is our most flexible option that is suitable for a variety of services including software development, training, and support. We’ll work with you to develop a Statement of Work (SOW) that describes the scope of the work to be performed. This can be as simple as our Basic Support SOW that is used for support contracts. For targeted development efforts, we will create a customized SOW for your project. We will provide you with a cost estimate for the work (as part of the SOW), or if you have a target budget in mind, we can tailor the SOW to match your available funds. You will be billed monthly for the services performed in the previous month, or you may elect to pay the entire cost in advance.

Firm Fixed Price Contract Templates
When project requirements are well defined, it may be possible to instead use an FFP contract for the effort. Similar to our T&M process, we will work with you to develop an SOW, a firm price, and a payment schedule for the effort. For our FFP SOWs, the requirements must be known in advance and described in detail—T&M SOWs can be more vague in order to support research goals where the exact project requirements are not known up front. Note that we generally do not engage in FFP contracts for projects under $25,000, since a T&M contract will provide the best price for these smaller efforts.
