The Unit charges for all of its services. Limited services are offered through General Fund Support from the College of Medicine Dean's Office for proposal preparation and/or manuscript review in situations where department and/or grant funds are not available. Chargeable costs include personnel, miscellaneous (project related supplies, copies, fax), computer hardware/software (when purchased specifically for a project). Faculty/Staff are required to maintain monthly Staff Activity Reports which track hours spent on both salary line and fee-for-service projects.
Personnel costs may be covered by:
- Salary Line: listing appropriate percentage of Unit personnel in the salary line section of a grant/contract
- Operating: listing as Statistical Services with a set amount to be billed as expensed on a monthly fee-for-service basis.
For research efforts requiring longer term commitments of personnel, salary line percent effort is the preferred mechanism of payment as fee-for-service does not guarantee availability of specific personnel on a project.
