Jonathan Leer asks "who in your organization budgets for and pays for technical
writing services?"

My department has its own budget and pays for any in-house documentation. We
report the actual costs back to the requesting department for a few reasons: to
keep them aware that documentation is a cost of their project and also to
prepare them for the possibility of future chargebacks. It also keeps us focused
on our priorities.

Besides our in-house customers, we also have two subsidiary (out-house?)
companies to whom we actually charge back documentation costs.

Regards, Auli
