Cost

In order to commission our services for a specific research project, the unit would want to establish a clear brief of what is required. We are more than happy to meet to talk through any ideas you might have, and can subsequently provide you with a research proposal and costing for the work.  Requirements can then be modified and agreed before the work commences. The current cost of PRA time is £350 per day. Please email HEPS.research@hants.gov.uk or call 01962 876233 if you would like to arrange an initial discussion.
