Contracting Charges and Fees

 

 

How Do We Charge for Work Completed?

We charge by the hour for all contracting jobs undertaken. Contractors keep a timesheet recording start and completion times and any personal time taken or break time. Break times are not included in the total work hours billed to the client. Click here to review an Oz Pharma timesheet.

The timesheets are completed weekly and signed by the ‘supervisory' client employee or an appropriate senior staff member. Usually we submit invoices for approved timesheets weekly or fortnightly. However, we try to be flexible to fit in with client preferences.

Contracting Fees

Contracting fees are set at an hourly rate for all work requested or approved by the client.

 

There are three levels of hourly rates:

 

Rate 1: Hourly Rate for Junior-Middle level marketing work: $100/hr

(Assumes work suitable for Product Manager or Senior Product Manager level or comparable).

This is a flat fee per hour, before taxes added. 

 

 

Rate 2: Hourly Rate for Middle level marketing work: $120+/hr

(Assumes work suitable for Marketing Manager Level)

This is a flat fee per hour, before taxes added. The fee would be negotiable depending on what level of responsibility is required i.e. Sales & expense budget responsibility, goals and direct reports etc.

 

 

Rate 3: Hourly Rate for Senior level marketing work: $140+/hr

(Assumes work suitable for Business Unit or Marketing Director Level)

This is a flat fee per hour, before taxes added. The fee would be negotiable depending on what level of responsibility is required i.e. Sales & expense budget responsibility, goals and direct reports etc.

 

For more minor level work, Oz Pharma is happy to negotiate a lower fee than Rate 1 (below $100 per hour), depending on the work. We strive to make our clients feel satisfied they are receiving good value for our services.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What Does the Contracting Fee include?

Our contracting fees only include time worked on the client's premises (unless client has given prior approval for work completed out-of-the-office).

Fees charged by Oz Pharma do not include:

• Time taken for lunch breaks, morning or afternoon tea

• Time used for personal conversations on the phone

• Time taken for work conversations with other clients

• Driving time from the contractors home to the client's office and back

• The cost of the contractor's work mobile phone calls (unless personal phone is used excessively for business)

 

Clients are expected to pay for the following:

Costs instigated outside of normal working hours including:

• International calls for work (made out-of-business-hours) on contractor's own phone.

• Time spent on phone doing business with suppliers or client employees.

• Travel costs for interstate visits, conference travel costs and any accommodation related to this.

• Travel time during business hours to interstate or international venues to do business. (see below)

• Travel time outside of normal travel times (time taken to go from home to client offices and back) to visit client-requested third party sites e.g. field trips to regional country areas etc.

 

Extensive Travel Time Outside of Business Hours

When there are unusual situations where a contractor has to travel extensively in personal time e.g. conferences, trips interstate or overseas etc, our approach is to negotiate a fair base for compensation so our clients are not over-charged.
