Development of Cost Recovery Rates

Cost recovery rates for Materials Laboratory testing and services are developed in two phases:

  1. Creation of schedules, which include common factors and calculations
  2. Computation of rates, which combine the various schedules to form the final cost recovery charges

Three elements are common to all rates:

  1. Weighted labor cost determined by a labor rate matrix combining the staff level and classes used for that activity
  2. Non-chargeable labor cost
  3. Non-labor overhead cost

* These rates are periodically recalculated and are subject to change without notice.
