Support levels
IMD provides consultancy support across all SFIA grades, with prices detailed on the supplied Rate Cards.
For each engagement, we provide a Technical Account Manager who will be the central customer point of contact. The Account Manager will have experience operating within the relevant field and of coordinating the delivery of similar services. This provides additional domain knowledge and support to the delivery team, a first point for escalation of issues, and added intelligence and continuity across projects and programmes. The Technical Account Manager will ensure administrative or contractual queries are actioned and resolved, including the need for any additional specialist support.
In addition, we endeavour to provide a secondary point of contact for each engagement to ensure continuity of service and support.
Depending on the particular assignment, support will be provided on-site, or remotely via email and phone, with the flexibility to arrange meetings on site or at our offices. On-site support will normally be between 8 am and 6 pm, Monday to Friday, excluding Public Holidays. Support outside these hours can be arranged by negotiation. Technical Account Management and support will normally be integrated into the delivery team. Costs are included in the proposed price for each engagement.
