Center for Genome Research & Biocomputing Discount Policy

Class 1: On-campus researchers: The first class of researchers are those who hold appointments at OSU but whose research funds are not held in an OSU Index.

i. Students and postdoctoral fellows who have external funding (e.g. from NSF) that provides research funds directly to the individual.
ii. Researchers (such as employees of federal and state agencies) who hold courtesy appointments at OSU.
iii. Visiting faculty with visiting appointments of more than 3 months.
iv. OSU Foundation and Ag. Foundation funds that do not have flow-through OSU indexes.

Class 2: Oregon Public University researchers: The second class of researchers are those who hold Oregon Public University index/funding.

Class 3: External collaborators: The third class of researchers are those who are engaged in substantive collaborations with OSU faculty. To qualify for the discounted external rate, at least 20% of the cost of a service must be paid from an OSU index (but not a non-OSU, Oregon Public University index), in order for the remainder of the fees charged to the external researcher to be eligible for a discount. The 20% co-funding could also be paid from funding sources eligible for discounted external fees under class1, except funds of visiting faculty (category iii above).

25% discount on available external fees for qualified researchers.
