Fee for Service

When a vendor provides a service for a set fee according to a published rate schedule routinely charged for same or similar items to all potential customer, the procurement may fall under the rubric "Fee for Service" as opposed to a Subcontract, or Consultant contract.  Examples of fee for services have included items such as assay services, catscan services, MRI facilities use, aerial photography, etc.  The vendor would not be responsible for conducting a portion of the research but simply provide a defined service for a set, published fee.  Fee for service items should be budgeted under "Other".
