Supervising Migration from MS-Exchange to Google Apps

Hi,

I kindly need your support and ideas in this small project. I have been asinged to be the project manager for migrating from MS-Exchange 2010 in house email system to Google Apps (to the cloud). This company will bring a third party IT service company to handle this operation. And because they now me and there is a big trust between us they need me to follow up with and make sure this project will be delivered in time with quality.

They will be charging for 65$/user/year (this including implementation)

Please I need your advises and ideas, now as a first step I'm planning to send email to the IT company and ask them to clarify the following points:
- Their authorized Google apps listing or something like that (I searched but didn't found their name under Google).
- What is the second, third, etc year renewal price?
- Send project pan explaining the process along with due dates.
- Support for Arabic messages in old MS-Outlook migration.
- Does they need to come to site or do it remotely


Please I need your feedback ASAP

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The company you are bringing in should provide you with a deployment guide, that includes setting up the Google Apps account, verifying domain ownership, and migrating your data (a very straightforward process).

Google Apps for Business costs $50 per user per year, or $5 per user per month.

They should be able to do things remotely.
