For your convenience, we provide different contract types to aid in the planning and budgeting of your project.

The expertise of Photon Engineering is available under two flexible contract options. Once we have a clear understanding of your project requirements, we’ll recommend the contract type that best suits your needs.

Time and Material Contract

The statement of work (SOW) is developed either by the client alone or in conjunction with Photon Engineering. In most cases the SOW is very specific however sometimes the client has only a general idea he/she wishes to explore and the resulting SOW is intentionally vague.

  • Client establishes a not-to-exceed (NTE) budget.
  • Photon Engineering consultants work on the contract at an hourly rate and report progress as requested by client.
  • Tasks get defined/directed in “real time” by the client.
  • Client controls work product and costs.
  • Contract is finished at client’s discretion.

Firm, Fixed Price Contract

The statement of work (SOW) is developed either by the client alone or in conjunction with Photon Engineering. The SOW and schedule will be very specific.

  • Photon Engineering submits a firm, fixed price proposal compliant with the SOW and schedule.
  • Photon Engineering consultants work on the contract and report progress per the SOW.
  • Work product is delivered to client on time and on budget.

Reporting and Documentation

In addition to direct communication, our clients can expect to receive clear, concise, and complete documentation during every phase of the project.

These reports include:

  • Optical designs (Code V, OSLO, ZEMAX)
  • Optical and mechanical prescriptions (FRED, ASAP, TracePro)
  • Written reports and briefing charts
  • Fabrication and part drawings
  • Quotations from vendors
  • Prototype and production hardware (through teaming arrangements with other companies)

Terms and Conditions

  • We ask for an upfront payment of a percentage of the estimated contract cost to get started on your project.
  • You’ll receive an invoice upon completion of the project or as stated in the terms of the contract.
  • We request payment of invoices within 30 days.
