Fixed price projects range from very small to very large. With a fixed price project effort, Infrasupport assumes all the project risk of accomplishing the task. It makes no difference how many hours the project consumes, the cost to the customer is fixed.
Many projects include equipment, vendor software, and installation, customization, and sometimes development labor. Payments for these larger projects are typically broken into milestones.
Fixed price projects make most sense when the outcome is easy to define and the technology is leading edge, versus bleeding edge. Firewall installations are a great example of an Infrasupport fixed price project. Others include new server installations, infrastructure build-outs from scratch, server and network upgrades, and certain well defined audits and assessments.
