Rates (applicable only for scans performed at CSI/BITC)

Definition of Rates

Base Rate:  rate calculated, according to NIH regulations, that estimates as closely as possible the cost to provide the service to an Emory or Emory partner institution faculty member.

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 an external user.

Note: To obtain pricing for scans conducted at EHC, please access the FY2016 Research Fee Schedule at www.ocr.emory.edu/ocr submission/research fees.html
