FY15 Web Group Fee Schedule

For FY15, the Web Group has three primary fee-based services: 

  1. Website Building
  2. Website Editing
  3. Website Review

This fee schedules below outline the costs for each service. The fees cover a portion of the staff time necessary to complete the service-related tasks; however, the school fully subsidizes the underlying systems and staff dedicated to creating and maintaining those systems.


Website Building Service

The Web Group’s site building activities are divided between official YSM organizations and faculty lab websites. To help ease the transition of lab websites into the school’s web systems, YSM will continue to fully subsidize lab websites (up to 20 pages per site) in FY14. The fee schedule is as follows:

Project SizePage RangeMinimum Threshold1Project Fee
Small10-20 pages19 pages$2,999.91/site
Medium21-50 pages38 pages$5,999.82/site
Large51-100 pages76 pages$12,079.44/site
Ad-Hoc2<15 pagesN/A$157.89/page

For more information about project costs billing, please see the Project Fee Details page.

For projects that fall outside of the Small, Medium and Large new or substantially revamped project parameters, clients can pay for ad-hoc page building service. The Ad-Hoc project category is intended for groups that need to add less than 15 pages to their existing website.

Website Editing Service

Site Editing is based on a per-page fee of $66.67. A page is generally defined as either one unique URL address or a page with 250 words of content. 

If you have multiple edits all on a single page (e.g. several text changes, adding a photo, and removing a person from a list), that will still be just one charge of $66.67.

Conversely, if you have one single change that spans multiple pages (e.g. changing an acronym that appears in multiple places), the charge will be multiplied by the total number of pages.

Website Review Service

A new service for FY14, the Website Review service is for those clients who need a professional review of their website’s organization and usability. The Web Group will provide a report with recommendations, which the client can then make themselves or hire the Web Group to implement.

Plan SizePage RangeMinimum Threshold1Project Fees

If the minimum threshold is not met for the project size, the Project Fee will be discounted for each page below the minimum threshold. For more information, please see the Project Fee Details page.

Basic Review

The initial review is priced at $300. This covers the cost of a comprehensive review of a site and a final report.

The report will include a section-by-section (and where warranted, page-by-page) review of issues found as well as recommendations to both rectify the issues that were identified as well as general improvements to the page/section.

Where warranted, it will also include an overall summary of ideas to enhance the entire site as well as proposing any major cleanup and reorganization of the content components and structure groups/pages in Tridion in order to facilitate the ongoing maintenance of the revised site.

Small/Medium/Large Implementations

Should you engage the Web Group to actually implement the recommendations we make, we will price the project according to the size of your existing site. These sizes follow the same categories as the site building plans. The prices are smaller in acknowledgement that we are working with existing content rather than building a site from scratch and that there is no photo shoot which adds a significant amount to the cost. 

For more information on exact costs, please see the Project Fee Details page.

Should new content be requested or required in order to implement accepted recommendations, the organization’s team must submit these in final form before the implementation can begin. In addition, if new content increases the number of total pages, the project may be priced in a larger project size.

Like a site build, the project team will review together the initial changes for adherence to the agreed upon approach. A round of edits are included in order to fine tune the changes before a final review and then going live with the revised site.

Faculty Lab Website Building Service

The first 20 pages in a lab website are built for free. While most lab websites are between 10-20 pages, some are much larger. To accommodate the larger websites, we’ve made 20-page “Expansion Bundles” available for $250 each. For example, a 60-page lab website would require two expansion bundles and cost a total of $500.


Project SizePage RangeMinimum Threshold1Project Fee

For each page not used in an expansion bundle, a $12.50 discount is issued.
