The Income and Recharge Committee advises the Executive Vice Chancellor on all matters related to rate structures proposed by campus service units for their goods and/or services. The Income and Recharge Committee reviews all rates except those set up by regulatory bodies and rates subject to control through other University policies. During this review the Committee considers rate decisions based on comparisons to organizations providing similar services or goods from within the community to avoid the appearance of unfair competition with local and private enterprise. The Committee insures that rates are set to consider full cost recovery. For self-sustaining activities, consideration shall be given to amortization of indebtedness and depreciation of equipment and facilities. In conjunction with the annual budget process, the committee reviews all requests for changes in rates, services and activities to insure that they reflect current needs and are consistent with University guidelines and policy.
