Although most of T. Jerry's consulting projects remain confidential, even after completion, a sample of his work can be found at www.ncfcarc.com. That specific project calls for establishing a North Carolina Farm Commodity & Aquaculture Research Center (NCFCARC) that could ultimately become part of an International Farm Commodity & Agriculture Research Network (IFCARN). A briefing statement with talking points is also posted along with an executive summary. The concept would be a perfect fit with biotechnology efforts now underway in North Carolina, the United States and around the world.
T. Jerry has also stressed the need for a North Carolina Global Trade Center (NCGTC) because such a facility could favorably impact our state in numerous ways. Some believe an NCGTC would also lead to establishment of a new North Carolina regional airline, much like the old Wheeler airline that once served North Carolina several decades ago. For example, "NCAir" could be established within the next 10 years if we establish a Global Trade Center (GTC). Doing so will not just benefit the area where it's located but all of North Carolina and the Southeast.
T. Jerry also has a concept for satellites of the NCFCARC in the form of a Carolina Food Innovation Technology Center. Feel free to ask him about that concept.

Good-Will Expenses (as may be incurred subject to the clients prior agreement or specific approval)
Extraordinary Expenses (unanticipated and specific expenses approved in advance by the client)

The following payment policy applies unless otherwise provided and agreed to by both parties in writing:
Hourly Payment Agreement: Subject to an advance retainer, payment for hourly work, plus expenses is due monthly by the 15th of the following month and subject to a written agreement or Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed by both parties unless otherwise agreed in advance of services. Hourly rates for consulting generally start at $180 per hour but depend upon the terms of agreement or MOU.
Fixed Payment Agreement: All fixed payment agreements are subject to advance payment unless otherwise provided. A formula for payment of one-third of the agreed rate upon execution of the agreement and one-third at an agreed upon halfway point of the project with the final one-third of the fixed payment rate due and payable two weeks before the anticipated completion of the project or as specified in a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) or other written document serving as the agreement. Expenses for fixed rate work are due monthly or as agreed upon in the written project agreement or MOU.
Payment for Research: Consulting Rates can vary significantly, depending on the client's policy related to payment for hours of research. When a client elects not to pay for "off line" research on consulting projects the base rate for the project is increased accordingly and reflected in the project agreement or MOU. However, the policy on research does not apply to professional fees for lobbying.
