The Non-Industry “Fee Schedule” / Site Budget Guidance Document provides a new resource to help researchers analyze costs associated with participating in non-industry funded clinical trials. Specifically, this document provides important guidance and strategies for creating a site cost budget, reviewing “non-negotiable” budget, analyzing site reimbursement method(s), managing routine care items, categorizing costs, and anticipating the types of expenses associated with participating in non-industry funded clinical trials. The Non-Industry “Fee Schedule” provides a starting point for budget analysis, meaning that not all the examples listed in the document apply to every protocol and that there may be other items in a specific clinical trial that represent a site cost.
Please note that for industry funded clinical trials, please refer to UUSOP-13 (Institutional Fee Schedule) and UUSOP-13-A (Cost Structure Rationale) for guidance and resources.
