All BML recharge rates are subject to a 33.7% Non-University Differential (NUD) assessment for non-University clients.
The Budget & Institutional Analysis (BIA) division of UC Davis has determined that Non-UC affiliate researchers who hold a Research Associate (WOS) courtesy appointment at BML are not exempted from the NUD assessment
For multi-year budget planning, we recommend adding an escalator of 3%/yr for all recharge services. UC policy requires that all BML recharge rates be reviewed annually and adjusted as appropriate to ensure full cost recovery.
