User Fees

All users shall pay user fees. Minor consultation on experimental techniques or simple instruction on the use of equipment as well as materials consumed during the normal operation of CMRIF instrumentation are normally included in user fees and not billed separately. In a limited number of cases, users are charged and billed at cost for supplies.

On request, estimates can be made by the Technical Director for a finite project based on prior experience with the understanding that the quotation is subject to inaccuracy. The facility will not be held responsible for any unforeseen circumstances that do not permit the work to be completed within the estimated cost or time schedule. All work is subject to equipment availability.
