Service Center Rate Requests

A Service Center (18-account) provides goods or services at approved rates that are essential in supporting The University of Texas at Austin’s teaching and research functions. Examples of Service Centers include machine shops, analytical equipment usage, analytical sample testing, or ITS Services.

The primary purpose for establishing a service center is to allow the university to recover costs incurred for goods or services used and required in support of sponsored research programs or academic needs.

Refer to sections 2.2.2. Service Center Funds and 10.2. Service Center Policy Summary in the Handbook of Business Procedures for additional information regarding Service Centers. Send an e-mail to for additional guidance or to submit a proposal for initial review by the Costing & Analysis Group.
