A fellow specifier ask me about this term. I have never heard of it before. Does anyone know about the zero cost approach?

Is that where the clients beat the specifier down on fees so much that we might as well work for free?

I read an article that talked about "zero cost approach" when it came to maintaining customer/client contact and information flow (a quick email of an article that the client would appreciate, for example). I can't figure out how that would apply to specification writing. Perhaps you'd better ask your fellow specifier to explain. And then please post the explanation here - inquiring minds want to know (at least mine does).
