New Habitat Requirements New Rate
Species that requires additional OLAC staff labor rate = base habitat rate + direct labor cost adjustment
Species that requires additional materials
  • Long term Changes: rate = base habitat rate + material cost adjustments
  • Short term/one time changes: rate = base habitat rate  + additional specific charges reflecting expenses
Species requires new caging type (size) Rate = base habitat rate * % of difference in measurement 
Species requires new caging type & additional labor & additional materials Rate = base habitat rate * % of difference in measurement + direct labor cost adjustment + material costs
New species Calculation of the costs of labor and materials
