Project Management and Schedule
Most of the time, Hoff & Mazor will deliver the client's app on or before the deadline set forth in the project proposal. In the absence of a deadline, the project will be completed within eight weeks of receipt of the initial payment, unless the Client requests or Hoff & Mazor agrees to a delay due to a change in the project scope.

Hoff & Mazor will consider the account delinquent if the invoice is not paid within thirty days.
