Internal Billing Procedure
This page describes the financial implementation of the LNF billing for U-M users (shortcodes).
The latest complete fee schedule can be found online. The fee schedule is reviewed annually and updated as needed. After approval from the U-M Office of Financial Analysis, the rates are published and the users notified of the new rates.
The College of Engineering has agreed to subsidize a portion of the running costs of the LNF. Rather than just incorporating the CoE subsidy implicitly (simply adding it to the overall revenue stream), a portion of the CoE subsidy is returned to internal users explicitly; offsetting a portion of their total charges: see this page for all details. Note that usage charges and credits can be monitored on the LNF online system (see details here).
