The cost of community management services is principally related to the number of staff hours needed to perform the variety of tasks and services for a client. A management proposal/contract typically identifies a budget of dollars for staff services. A lead manager is assigned to each client and performs many of the normal and special management related tasks. A schedule of hourly rates is assigned to each category of staff member, such as administrative/secretarial, accounting, manager and senior manager. We make an effort to provide services when feasible with lower cost staff members, working under the direction of the lead manager. Utilizing a blend of personnel at different rates results in more total staff hours of services to a client. This approach has resulted in more service at less cost to our clients. Office supplies, printing, postage, etc., are reimbursed based on the level of individual client use.
