Definition of Rates

Base Rate:  rate calculated, according to NIH regulations, that estimates as closely as possible the cost to provide the service.

Non-Academic Rate:  The base rate inflated by no more than the current NIH on campus F&A rate (56%) to be charged for work done for a for-profit organization that is not tied to a faculty member at an academic institution.

Prices effective as of February 1, 2014.
