    Hey, I was bidding a job and my perspective client is using all of these contractor terms on me. I am no stranger to bidding jobs and writing up official contracts but some of his abreviations threw me for a loop. Anyone know what TTC means? As in, "Please quote cost, lead time and TTC for this project" I am assuming that's something like 'total cost'

    Also, while I was looking for help online, I came accross this hilarious page on the subject;

    The first definition is the funniest! I love it.

    When I first read this, he did mention lead time in front of TTC, so I am guessing Total Time Calculated, or The Total Cost. This is just a guess. :)

    I will move this to the Business Forum and leave a redirect on the Commercial forum.

    Total Term Contract...meaning the length of the contract.

    Also known as Time-To-Complete (TTC)
