Learning Management Implementation scope of work total: $12,550

Phase 1: Discovery for $6,550

Just like the courses you design, this scope of work template is laid out in phases. 

The first phase of the project will focus on getting familiar with the client’s existing curriculum and training sessions, working with the client to identify their high-level goals and objectives for a LMS implementation, and researching the best learning management systems (LMS) to implement.

The discovery phase also includes helping the client draft an inquiry message to third-party vendors and setting up vendor demos. 

While this scope of work template is designed for one instructional designer, if you need more support throughout the project, consider teaming up with another designer (and adjust the pricing accordingly).

Phase 2: Implementation for $4,800

Once you and your client have landed on a LMS you want to implement, it’s time to execute. 

First, you’ll configure the new LMS platform and set up everything from branding elements to customer and vendor information to inventory and pricing lists for $1,200. 

Next, you’ll configure existing integrations between the client’s content management systems (CMS) and LMS platforms for $1,500. 

You’ll also configure new company accounts on the new LMS platform with the required user roles, objects, workflows, and reports ($1,500) before uploading existing content into the LMS for $600.

Phase 3: Handoff for $1,200

For the final phase, you’ll make sure your client is prepared to handle the LMS once the project ends by preparing a training manual for software set-up, maintenance, and best practices. You’ll also deliver a training to go over how to publish and maintain content using the LMS. 

Once your proposal is approved, you can easily turn the scope into an invoice with just one click.
