If you've ever thought about a project, be it an app, software or what have you, you know how all kinds of ideas can pop up, but are they all realistic to the kind of product you’re looking for? This is where scope becomes not only a necessity, but a means by which the process can be made simpler both for those generating ideas and for those developing said ideas. Scope lays out all the information needed to take a project from layout to requirements and so on. In other words, you can get a project from start to finish that much more easily and realistically.

The level of experience should be at the top of your list, followed by things like ethical practices, standards and behavior, organization, and timeliness. Such factors add to the differences in project estimates, but there's another factor that shouldn't be overlooked. The type of company bidding on the project can also make a significant difference on an estimate.
