1Adjusted for rising regulator fees and contractor/vendors costs. Direct administrative support costs minimized via collections automation and client control of accouts.

2Special projects include construction support, laboratory decontamination, clean-outs and off-site waste pickups (contracted out as appropriate). Extraordinary waste includes non-routine waste for which a pre-established rate does not exist.
Note: To accommodate C&G rules - r
echarges are implemented near the time of service based on estimated costs to be adjusted upon receipt of accurate vendor bill (sometimes greater than 60 days).

Footnotes:

(2)  Name change for clarity (previously "Non-reactive chemicals"). Waste stream includes all chemicals that are lab packed(EH&S places sealed containers into a larger drum with packing material).

(3) Name change for clarity (was "Reactives and mercury-containing chemicals"). Waste stream includes chemicals that are lab packed (EH&S places sealed containers into a larger drum with packing material).

(5) Waste stream includes all chemicals that can be "bulked" (EH&S can legally and safely decant the contents into a drum of mixed liquids).

(8) Special projects include construction supports, laboratory decontamination, clean-outs and off-site waste pickups (sometimes fully contracted out as appropriate).
Extraordinary waste includes non-routine waste for which a pre-established disposal rate does not exist.

(9) Hourly rates for Special Projects. This rate is used in cases where vendor support is either unavailable or is inappropriate for the project. The EH&S Hazardous Materials Manager sill determine the application and use of this to minimize overall costs while assuring waste disposal and consultation compliance.

(1) Calculation methodology simplified to consolidate costs under either RUA or Construction Support services. Monthly rates represent fiscal year costs distributed  over 12 months. Costs include campus license compliance activities and RUA services and maintenance. Fixed costs (licensing, registration maintenance, and regulatory fees) have been more appropriately distributed across all service lines. Please see narrative for more information. 

(2) Services provided include: routine surveys,dosimetry, package inspection and delivery, instrument calibration, radioactive waste management (liquid scintillation vials, and lab debris), radioactive material (RAM) licensing fees, licensing and other costs associated with RAM safety. The hazard classification and fee is derived from hazard guide values where higher hazards require more effort and engender higher implementation costs. 
RAM Class 3: Increased number of surveys for highest hazard work mandated. Tracks license maintenance and fees. Increased number of pkgs delivered.
RAM Class 2: Increased routine surveys mandated. Tracks license maintenance and fees. Increased number of pkgs delivered.
RAM Class 1: Mandated routine surveys. Tracks license maintenance and fees. Increased number of pkgs delivered.
Revised: "On-hold" RAM RUA: Now includes charges for fixed costs (license fees and full maintenance). On-hold status does not remove RUA from license and the devices must remain fully registered.

(3) Renamed to RPM Class 1 (from FY14 "Electron Microscope & Minor RUA Fee" ). This monthly fee covers costs (see details in Note 2) and RPM registration fees and other costs associated with RPM safety. 
Class 1 RPM: Actual surveys of electron microscopes prove that more hours are necessary than previously projected. 
Fixed costs (licensing, registration maintenance, and regulatory fees) have been more appropriately distributed to this service line.

(4) Renamed in RPM Class system - Class 2 RPM. (FY14 known as "Radiation Producing Machine Use Fee")
Class 2 RPM: RPMs were placed into a hazard class system (like RAM) based on hazard. 
These machines require more frequent survey action than previously projected.

(5) "On-hold" RPM RUAs are inactive RUAs which are assessed a reduced fee. On-hold status does not remove the RPM RUA from license and the devices must remain fully registered.
This fee covers costs (see details in Note 4, above) for EH&S maintenanceof the license or registration and the required records, verification of non-use, and other activities as required (e.g. leak testing sealed sources).
On-hold RPM RUAs: Now includes charges for fixed costs (license fees and full maintenance). On-hold status does not remove RPM RUA from license and the devices fully registered even if they are on-hold.

(6) The non-routine survey fee is applied services are required beyond the listed service lines above. For example: Additional surveys or actions due to non-compliance in a laboratory will have this rate applied per survey.

(7) For services not provided through defined RUA program activity that require additional temporary support. Construction and non-routine services include (but are not limited to): new facility/laboratory construction or experiment support, equipment or facility decontamination, special State compliance assistance, oversight of specialized contractor or licensed assistance, internal dose evaluation, contamination/spill support and accident investigation where EH&S was not immediately contacted, litigation assistance and fire.
The construction labor activity requires more effort and/or staffing to meet the needs including an adjustment for D&D work.
