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".
