Custom Application Risk Margin Assessment Calculator

The calculator below provides a means for you to calculate a risk margin that is specific to your situation. You fill out some data about the project, the client and the vendor, and it will indicate the risk levels as well as a percentage margin that you can add to the vendor’s cost and time estimates. The questions in this form are also a guide as to the type of evaluation questions you should be asking vendors when getting an estimate from them.

The calculated risk scores and margins are based on over a decade of experience working with many different vendors, clients and projects across multiple continents as well as data that was collected through market research and feedback.
