Core Facility Support Services

The Office of Finance & Human Resources provides business support services to research core facilities across the university.

New core labs may use The Office of Finance & HR’s consulting services to develop service pricing, create business plans and devise business projections. Existing core facilities may also seek assistance regarding pricing revisions, annual Office of Research reporting metrics, and advice about purchasing new instrumentation or equipment.

Recognizing that each research core facility has different business needs, The Office of Finance & HR can provide specific assistance and resources ranging from basic accounting and payroll to developing business plans and analyzing potential software products.

The Office of Finance & HR partners with specialists from other Office of Research units and UGA central accounting and compliance offices to assist research core facility directors and management staff with all aspects of business operations, planning, rate setting, information technology, marketing, and financial forecasting.
