Fee Structure

Collaborative Subcontracts and Contracted Services

For some computational projects, investigators may desire to establish a formal collaborative subcontract for computational efforts, i.e. for specific computational goals and aims included in an externally funded investigation. Formal collaborations could be for access to core resources and personnel, and for collaborative research ventures.

Investigators that would like to explore potential collaborations should contact Dr. Sprang or Dr. Holley to discuss project goals and strategies. We will work with collaborating investigators to develop methodologies, timelines, and a budget. If the investigator is external to the University of Montana, a Facilities and Administration charge must also be included in the budget.
