We don't charge back a fee to use the inventory system. We WANT them to use the inventory system!
The campus does recharge for hazardous waste disposal but that may change because of the problem of legacy chemicals - handed down through generations of researchers. Grants are charged a not-insignificant percentage for University overhead.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Chemical Inventory
As we begin to expand our existing bar code chemical inventory system, the folks in Administration are asking if there are any institutions that charge a fee back to departments in order to pay for the system.
Hard economic times lead to such inquiries from VP's.
I appreciate any comments regarding funding of chemical inventory systems, related staffing, and delivery vehicles, etc.
