Unix/Linux OS/Third Party Components/Controls Purchase Cost.

Question
Dear Mkitwrk

If Third party Components/Controls Toolkit is used in the system
being developed by the Information Technology Service Provider, Who should bear the purchase cost of this Toolkit ?.

1. Software Development Company
2. Client who requires the System to be developed by Software Development Company.

i.e. 1 or 2.

Do you feel even this may work ?. If a mutual understanding between both parties takes place, the purchase cost of the Toolkit
can be shared between both parties equally  as 50 % each ?.


Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
Hi!
If you quote a project, you'd better have all of your costs covered by your quote.
If you can't write it and you need a 3rd party tool, you should have included the cost of that tool in your quote.
Otherwise, you'll not get more business in the future.
Enjoy!
