Antoniuk Consulting Services, LLC -- Quality Assurance Consulting for the Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Industries
Peter M. Antoniuk
General Terms of Service
An executed contract, consulting agreement, or master service agreement is required prior to the performance of any consulting service, including making travel arrangements or incurring any out-of-pocket expenses. ACS can provide an agreement, or use one provided by the potential client.
Consulting services are billed at a standard hourly rate; this rate may change each calendar year. Please call or email for current rates (508-202-3033 or firstname.lastname@example.org). The standard hourly rate applies to actual hours worked. There are no retainer fees for consulting services.
Time is allocated to clients and booked well in advance (typically 4-8 weeks). If allocated time needs to be cancelled, there is no charge if cancelled at least one day in advance; if no advance notice is given, 6 hours is billed to the client. If out-of-pocket expenses (e.g., airfare or hotel) are incurred by ACS for anticipated business related travel and these cannot be refunded, the client is responsible for reimbursement for such charges in the event of a cancellation. ACS makes every effort to work with clients to reach alternate scheduling solutions when cancellations are necessary.
ACS charges the standard hourly rate for all travel outside of Massachusetts. For airline flights, this applies to time spent in the aircraft only, and excludes travel time to/from the airport, time waiting at the airport, or time traveling to hotels or firms. For airline travel, all flights longer in duration than 4 hours will be booked as business or first class. Every attempt is made to make reasonably priced hotel accommodations. There is no charge for travel to/from sites in Massachusetts. If ACS incurs expenses for parking while on-site at a client’s facility, such expenses are to be reimbursed by the client.
Invoices are provided to clients at the end of each month for services provided and expenses incurred in the month. Payment is expected within 30 days of the invoicing, unless other arrangements are specified in the consulting agreement.
