Field Monitoring

Survey Analytics will also make recommendations to the client, in the event the incidence rate is below expectation or an anomaly is discovered.

  2. Data Collection Timeline

    Survey Analytics will make a best effort (via reminders, memo recommendations, survey adjustments, & re-samplings) to achieve the client's data collection goal. If, following these efforts, the survey continues to perform poorly, Survey Analytics reserves the right to discontinue data collection or make adjustments to the CPI accordingly. and charge the client for cost incurred to date. A survey is deemed to have performed poorly when it falls under at least one of the following scenarios:

    • Low incidence rate (<5%)
    • High terminate/complete ratio
    • High dropout rate
  3. Pricing and incidence

    All cost and deliverability commitments will be provided in the client's sample quote. If more than 10% of qualified respondents do not complete the survey for any reason, feasibility may change. All commitments are based on the projected incidence rate reflected in the quote. If the incidence rate falls below the lowest project incidence OR if additional qualifying criteria are added, Survey Analytics reserves the right to adjust pricing and feasibility.

  4. Terms of Payment

    Client agrees to pay 50% of the total project cost to Survey Analytics. The balance is due immediately, upon receiving final deliverables, or at the completion of data collection.
