    What customers thought
    Very well written document, in plain English as promised.

    One useful article to add to the template would be to have a provision where you cap the total amount that the project will cost. I did receive estimates from developers with a lower limit and an upper limit. I therefore introduced a paragraph where I basically said that the overall project fee will not go beyond the estimated upper limit (in terms of hours--converted into price) that the developers quoted initially. I also added a provision whereby developers will endeavour to keep the total number of development hours to the minimum possible.
