Recharge unit rate reviews and adjustments should be performed on a regular basis and at minimum every two years. Mandated and widely consumed rates are reviewed by the Recharge Rate Committee every 3-5 years, and rates with greater than $50,000 C&G recharge activity reviewed annually by Research Accounting. At any time, a rate review may be called by the Deans/Vice Provost/Vice Chancellor, Budget and Institutional Analysis, or Research Accounting.
