I sent the quotation of website development to the prospect. Once he agrees to our cost, We set about the project.

Can we send like this by email? Is "set about" used correctly in the context?

I sent the quotation of website development to the prospect. Once he agrees to our terms and conditions, we can get started on the project.

Note: "Cost" is incorrect. The cost of the project is what your company (the seller of these services) pays in salaries, equipment, licenses, and overhead like advertising, rent and utilities. If your company charged the customer the project cost, your company would not prosper because it would not make any profit.

Would "price or budget" be fine use in negotiating with prospects?

For instance, Usually, We confirm the price/budget of developing the website after negotiating with the prospects about the price, check our work volume, resources which are going to be involved in the work and evaluate the profit by winning the project from our customer.

The prospect usually affords our quotation(our charges) for him before awarding the project to us.

Price - ok
Budget - no.


A budget is a schedule of detailed cost components of a project. The bottom line total is the project budget. That is the same as the cost of the project.

You also have your own household budget. Budgets can be for a time period (month, quarter, year) or for a set of activities like a project. The Project Manager's job is to keep the project on time, to keep it on-budget, and to maintain a high quality. If you manage your money, you make a new budget every month. That is you list your income and what you will spend on food, housing, utilities, transportation, cell phone, and everything else. A balanced budget is when the total expenses = total income. During the month, you monitor your spending to see if you are on track to meet your budget.
