Recharge Committee Roles

The Recharge Committee reviews all newly proposed recharges and periodically reviews existing recharges to determine their continuing appropriateness in view of any change in the operations of the service center.  With the help of the Cost Policy office, the recharge committee also reviews for the continued appropriateness of service center rates or when there is a change in the rate methodology.

The following responsibilities are carried out by the Recharge Committee:

  • Determines and communicates the recharge process, including clear deadlines, for the establishment of recharges and fees that become effective at the commencement of each fiscal year.
  • Analyzes campus activities and recommends the most appropriate funding mechanism.
  • Reviews proposals to establish new recharges and fee activities to ensure that there is a broad and significant demand for the specialized service to be provided, and that recharge and fee rate components meet guidelines for Federal and non-Federal rates as outlined in the establishment criteria listed in the Business and Finance Bulletins A-47, A-56, A-59, BUS-72, and the costing principles in the Uniform Guidance, 2 CFR 200.
  • Considers all requests for recharge and fee rate increases or new rates.
