If you're dealing with a website with more than a few hundred pages, I
would find an accessibility service provider with a firm grasp of
WCAG-EM.  That is a structured methodology to select the few pages to
audit instead of paying for all of them to be audited. The cost savings
can be significant.

After you get a sense of the vendor's credentials and experience, insist
on a fixed-price, fixed-schedule bid to help bring you into compliance
with ADA via a perpetual, unconditional warranty. Get an hourly rate to
cover whatever turns out wasn't part of their bid. Don't be shy about
comparing that across domestic vendors.

If you have online documents like PDFs and/or videos, make sure the
vendor has experience with those too, and the proposal covers your
entire online presence.  If you'd like a proposal from us, give me a
call or an email.
