Service Activities - Urbana-Champaign

The UIUC Office of Government Costing responsibilities for UIUC service centers are as follows:

  • Establishment and maintenance of service activity policy (BFPP 22.4.2)
  • Providing training for service center personnel and our internal staff
  • Performing service rate/fund reviews and/or providing assistance to departments with rate calculations
  • Monitoring the service center's adherence to University and federal policies (3E funds)

There are a wide variety of service funds at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.  Each service center fund is its own business operation and many times contains multiple rates within each fund. Examples of service center rates include but are not limited to: analytical testing, bundled services, utility rates, animal facility rates, machine shop rates, storeroom markup rates, carpool rates, etc.

In order for our staff to complete these rate reviews/calculations, they must work with each service center to obtain an understanding of their business operations.

UIUC Costing has developed several job aids such as rate templates, Business Objects reports, and general guidelines to assist service centers in performing their rate calculations. These job aids can be accessed on this webpage.
