External Users: According to Partners Research Cores Policy beginning October 1, 2010, all research core facilities will be required to charge external users fees that include the direct costs of the core service plus an overhead component. External users are identified as investigators (Partners-affiliated or non-Partners-affiliated) and institutions that use non-Partners funds to pay for research core services. Investigators using Partners funds are considered internal customers.

Type of External User IDC Rate
Academic Medical Centers (AMCs) & Non-profits 44%
For-profit and Industry 59%

ATTENTION USERS: You have 30 days from the time of billing (i.e. charged onto the grant) to dispute any charges (document direct line item "Research Core Services"). The policy will be strictly adhered to. If a problem arises, please contact either Misha Pivovarov or Serena Sullivan and we will work with you to correct this problem.
