Web Accessibility Audit scope of work total: $6,600

Phase 1: Audit for $5,100

Naturally, a bulk of the work for this project will take place during the audit phase. Start by conducting kick off calls to review initial background materials provided by the client. For the kick off call, you’ll also want to create an introductory presentation that walks the client through your process, potential scenarios, and questions that will help set clear goals.

Next, it’s time for the audit. You’ll audit the client’s website to see how it conforms to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 standards. Our template recommends auditing up to 20 pages for $1,500. If you’d prefer to split up the work, consider building a team by partnering with another full-stack developer. 

This phase wraps up with a report of your findings. Present the insights and opportunities based on your learnings with a report of recommendations. Our template recommends pricing this report at $2,100. Be sure to communicate the value-based price when presenting the scope to your client.

Phase 2: Implementation for $1,500

To help the client put your web accessibility recommendations into action, the next phase is all about implementation. Update everything from website navigation to headings and links to images and multimedia to achieve WCAG 2.0 AA-level conformance. 

To avoid scope creep, don’t forget to outline the maximum number of pages your scope includes. Our web accessibility audit scope of work template recommends 20 pages for $900, so be sure to adjust the price if you choose to include more. 

While it may seem tedious at first, creating a clear and detailed scope of work makes it easier to get paid when it’s time to invoice your client for your independent services
