Essential part of any quote: validity term. "This quote is our final  
and best offer, and is valid until dd-mm-yyyy"

That's not to say you might not still agree the same amount of money  
at a later date, but you're not guaranteeing it, as circumstances  
might have changed, such as availability of people to work on it, so  
you have to outsource, which is of course going to have a cost impact  
that *someone* has to eat.
