Due to the nature of our work, differences in systems, altering perception of client requests and other circumstances outside of our control, it is often difficult to provide a fixed up front quotation, therefore accurate estimates will be provided by OTW for any work the Agency requests in GBP Sterling. These estimates are made based on the requirements, information and materials made available at the time. Any variations to the work requested may incur additional charges or require the need to issue a new estimate. The accuracy of an estimate will be determined by the amount of information available at the beginning of a work request or project. OTW will do it’s absolute best to stay true to any estimate given (see section 4).
Estimates are not binding quotes and may be varied or altered with discretion by OTW. If additional work is required that is deemed out of scope of the originally stated requirements, then the original estimate will become void and a new estimate can be issued by OTW or requested by the Agency. All original requirements will be listed on the estimate. If the Agency notes any discrepancies with their requests and the listed inventory on the estimate, it is up to the Agency to raise the discrepancy with OTW, so a new estimate can be issued. If a new estimate is required or it becomes apparent that an estimate cannot be adhered to, OTW will inform and liase with the Agency at the soonest opportunity.
