How the process works
A client is identified. The client may approach us. We may approach the client. The client may be referred by an associate.
The Senior Operations Officer and a member of the management team meet with the client to develop a clearer expectation of the needs of the client.
The Senior Operations Office and the management team match the needs to the consultant.
The Management Team reviews the consultants’ areas of expertise and match to the client.
The needs are reviewed with the consultant and the consultant determine the cost of his/her services.
The Senior Operations Officer also determines what services The Busch Professional Group will be required to provide to support the needs of the consultant. A minimum fee of 20% of the consultant fee is The Busch Professional Group standard fee, however, this percentage is determined by the Executive Team of The Group and based exclusively on the level services to be delivered by The Group. The total contract price is determined by adding the consultant fee and the professional fee percentage of the Group. None of The Group's income comes from the consultant fees. Our goal is to make the consultant's job easy by handling all of the "backroom" work necessary for an effective delivery of the consultant's services.
The total contract price is presented to the client. Any negotiation of the contract requested by the client will require the consultant's approval.
A contract will be entered into between The Group and the client and The Group and the consultant. The consultant will be required to complete a W-9 for each contract and will be included in The Group/Consultant contract. Advances can be included in the contract at the consultant's request. Under the guidelines of the Client Contract, all travel expenses are to be reimbursed within ten (10) days of incurring the expense. Therefore, rolling reimbursements will occur over the life of the Client Contract.
At the conclusion of the fulfillment of the Client Contract, The Busch Professional Group collect the contract fees from the client. Each Client Contract requires payment within ten (10) days upon completion of the contract.
Within ten (10) days of receipt of the client's payment, The Busch Professional Group will forward the Consultant Fees.
A percentage of The Group fees (not the consultant fees), to be determined by the Executive Team of The Group, will be donated to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Disease Research. It is solely the consultant's decision if any portion of their fees are to be included in the donation to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Disease Research.
