Cost Analysis

Service Departments

The Office of Cost Analysis provides TAMU service departments with annual rate reviews and approvals depending on materiality thresholds. This review and approval process is required by Federal OMB A-21, TAMU System Regulations, and University Rule. The Office of Cost Analysis requests annual rate studies from established service departments and should be contacted when a department is considering the formation of, undergoing functional change in, or closing a service department. In addition, the Office of Cost Analysis provides assistance in developing and/or evaluating service department rates.
