    Question Provided (that)

    Hi, should I use "provided that" or just "provide", or maybe there is no difference (classical omitting of "that")? E.g.:
    "will pay the bonus provided the job is completed on time." or
    "will pay the bonus provided that the job is completed on time."
    (This is from The American Heritage Discrionary.)

    "In slightly less formal contexts that is often omitted, and then provided/providing may be reagrded as quasi-conjunctions" Fowler's Modern English Usage
