Beginning June 1, 2017, the CRC changed to a subsidized fee-for-service model subject to indirect costs. In the new CTSA project period, a limited amount of CTSA funding is allowed for CRC resources in small pilot studies; however, investigator-initiated sponsored studies (federal, foundation, etc.) should begin including the subsidized CRC fees in your study budget. Industry-sponsored should budget the full rate.
Rates are billed based on time reserved on the unit with a minimum of one hour charged.
