The assignment was undertaken with the professionalism, eye for detail and thoroughness that was expected of MetaPM. This PMO can now undertake lessons learned workshops and capture the data knowing it is clean, useable and of value.”

How Much Does Consulting Services Cost?
MetaPM is committed to providing cost-effective and value-based project consulting and delivery services, to all organisations who are striving to improve their project delivery performance and outcomes. Our fees are discussed and agreed prior to commencement to ensure everyone is clear on the estimated costs and agreed deliverables.
We have three different types of fee agreements:
Our time-based service fee is generally used by clients who wish to engage our services for a fixed daily rate and time duration. The average engagement duration is typically no less than one month and no more than one year. Extensions to contracts are common. Our standard fees are very competitive for a consultancy, with a mid-level consultant start from around $100 per hour or $800 per day ex GST for a standard 8 hour day, with the maximum fees for our Principal consultants averaging around $250 per hour or $1,800 per day ex GST, for a standard 8 hour day.
Our capped time-based service fee is generally used by clients who wish to engage our services for a fixed daily rate and time duration, however, they are constrained by budget and therefore wish to put a limit on the maximum contract value.
In this instance, prior to commencement, we would agree on daily rates, an estimate of effort, and key deliverables that we believe can be achieved within this fee.
Our fixed-price service fee is generally used by clients when they wish to shift the ‘delivery risk’ and/or they do not have the in-house skills, knowledge, and processes to deliver the work.
Our fees are comparable to those of the recruitment agencies, however, we provide a range of additional value-added services and assurance to ensure that you can deliver with confidence.
Fees can vary depending on the size, complexity, experience, and support needed to deliver the engagement.
