Service Center Rate Review
Biennially, the Accounting Office notifies Service Centers when rate reviews are required. The selected Service Centers will receive instructions on how to complete the rate review and when they are due back to the Auxiliary Office.
It is advised that Service Centers conduct their own rate reviews annually with the highest accountable administrator of the area.
Please contact the Auxiliary Office at firstname.lastname@example.org for the Service Center Rate Review template.
Reason for Directive
OMB Uniform Guidance requires service centers to adjust rates at least on a biennial basis to determine whether an upward or downward adjustment of rates is necessary.
Who must comply?
All service/recharge centers.
Uncompleted Rate Reviews
Follow-up emails will be sent to remind the delinquent EBA’s and notify the Dean’s office and Contract & Grants that the users cannot be charged with unapproved rates.
List of Approved Rates
Division of Sponsored Programs (DSP) and Contracts and Grants (C&G) receive from the Auxiliary Office a list of identified service centers and their rate approval status on a regular basis.
Reminder: Costs already reimbursed through the Facilities and Administrative (indirect) cost rate e.g., administrative salaries and equipment depreciation cannot be included in center rates.
