Self-supporting Recharge Operations (internal and external clients)

A self-supporting recharge operation is one that is funded entirely by those who purchase the goods or services offered.

Recharge operations must function like a non-profit business and collect revenues sufficient to cover all costs. Services offered are rate-based and must be necessary to advance the educational, research, patient care or public service functions of the university.

Recharge operation activities may involve internal recharge (when one department provides a good or service to another department), external billing (when the university provides a good or service to an external entity) or a combination of both.
