I have been getting some very interesting replies to my request for
consulting work. The level of responses has been from totally
unqualified to other engineers looking to expand their practices. 
This led me to start thinking of the possiblities of networking among
our professional community to share responsiblities on projects -
essentially increasing a small office potential and decreasing a larger
offices overhead and expense.

I was wondering how many of you have formed cooperations between other
professionals either in your own area or outside your area? How have you
split responsiblity and who has taken the lead? What distribution of
fees is reasonable when dealing with other professionals? 
When is it reasonable to step out of the lead as EOR with your client
and pass the responsiblity to your Internet associate?

There are a ton more questions, but I am curious if and how others have
worked through an Internet based network. Does distance create a
problem? Do you have any tricks or techniques to communicate design
problems and resolve them?

Now that I got the ball rolling with this thread, I would be very
interested in hearing from others who are establishing professional
relationships and what expectations you have had or are having for
