How Do We Charge for Our Services?

Depending on the nature of the work and the type of assistance needed, a nominal fee will be charged. Initial 1/2 hour consultation is free for everyone. Note that an initial 1/2 hour free consultation period is very important for the CCSAM staff to become familiar with client's research project. After the meeting, the Director will be able to provide an estimated cost with timeline for the clients. Based on the client's ability to pay for services, our fee will be negotiable.  +++> Consulting Request (PDF)
