Downloadable PDF version, $200; spiral-bound manual version, $225. 

An extensive survey manual that shows how to avoid horrendous money losses many A/E firms suffer in fee bidding competition with other firms.

Don't negotiate another design services contract without this exclusive A/E fees competition survey report:

- Common but unspoken competitive bidding practices of many successful large and small design firms.

- Candid reports from A/E's on their best and worst fee bidding and negotiation experiences.

- Predatory practices of clients who never pay their architects and engineers.

- Fee "gaming" by seemingly respectable corporations, nonprofits, and local government agencies.

- How A/E's avoid or recover from bad contracts and bad clients.

...and much more on office life-and-death issues that design professionals suffer but rarely discuss openly.
