IDENTITY

Hawkins Engineering is owned and represented by Daryl Ray Hawkins, a contract engineer. Working in the industry since 1978, acting as a contractor engineer and consultant since 1985.

The primary advantage to hiring Daryl Ray Hawkins is experience. Your requirements receive the attention of a veteran, each and every time. Engineering design efforts are offered to small to large companies, inventors and entrepreneurs, and engineering firms and organizations Ė as a contract engineer working directly for the customer.

When only engineering support services are required, Hawkins Engineering provides the business infrastructure to meet the customerís needs -- licensed as a business in the state of Washington since 1993, with a commitment for many more years.

Efforts or services can involve an entire design or project, large or small, portions of a design, or consulting on an as needed basis. Whatever the customer needs.
CONTRACT AND PAYMENT POLICY
 
Work can be done on-or-off site, as needed, depending on the customerís requirements. Many customers are located within the greater Seattle, WA area including Seattle, Bellevue, Redmond, Kirkland, Bothell, Auburn, Kent, and Issaquah, with a few out of state.
 
Contract engineer efforts are typically under 1099. However, when billing indirectly through a job shop or recruiter agency, either 1099 or W2 is acceptable. Job shops and recruiter agencies are provided a discounted rate.
 
Engineering support services can likewise be under 1099 or treated as a vendor.
 
Cost and scheduling can be as simple as a Statement-of-Work with dollars and milestones, with periodic invoices at agreed upon intervals. More comprehensive contracts can also be arranged.
 
While all billing is computed at an hourly rate for work done or services provided. When quotations or estimates are involved, the corresponding amount will be represented in hours of work needed. Other than particular expenses like travel and specialized equipment, Hawkins Engineering accounts for its own overhead.
 
While Hawkins Engineering will locate and arrange the work of fabrication and assembly houses, or other sub-contractors, their fees are paid directly by the customer -- resulting in lower cost to the customer.
 
SUPPORT POLICY

All designs are supported for as long as the customer needs, indefinitely, on an hourly or agreed upon rate.
