How To

Use a Service Center

A service center operates facilities or research labs as self-sustaining “businesses” that provide on-going products or services in support of the University’s teaching and research functions. A service center will charge you for the services provided. They must recover their operational costs annually through rate(s) to users based on an approved budget and approved rate(s). The service center uses an approved rate, by combining salary, labor and materials expenses to charge services actually provided each month.
