TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
We pay our contract writers on a bill-as-you-work basis. We fix a price for the entire project and the writer bills for a certain percentage at specific project milestones.

I have worked on bill-as-you-work and lump-sum contracts.
As a lump sum example, I negotiated a training development contract for a
lump sum with a payment schedule:
25% up front
25% for a major milestone (at week 12)
50% for the finished project (at week 17)
