Quoting for system development projects

By OzRunner ·
I have been asked to assess a quote for a system development project and there's not much to go on:
- project management $x
- system development $y

I would expect to see at least a breakdown of number of resources at $ per unit of time and probably split across:
- project management
- requirements analysis
- system design
- database design
- development
- validation
- implementation

What sort of detail do others give/expect out there?

Under Implementation add User Training,

As well as breaking down by unit of time, you should consider a breakdown by deliverable. That way, you'll know what exactly all that Requirements Analysis is in aid of. How can you assess a quote if you don't know what they're going to produce? Knowing the deliverables also makes it easier to deal with contract administration and billing.

These should be covered in other sections, but the quote should also cover billing periods, change management, dispute resolution, etc.

By the way, if it's a fixed price contract you might not get a lot of response in requesting more detail.
