Whether I'm working direct or as a consultant, I have a standard time and
cost schedule.

1X estimate for time and cost if I/we work on the project from the
beginning.

1.5X if I/we are brought in halfway through the project

3X if I/we are brought in at the last minute.

5X if someone else already tried to do it and I/we have to clean up their
mess.

Don't ever hesitate to say that you can't clean up someone else's mess in
less than X days and there isn't going to be a way to avoid a slip in the
project schedule. I've seen more tech writers get in trouble for making
promises like that they couldn't keep than any other reason.
