Cost and Billing

Effective FY23, there will be a nominal shop billing rate increase of 3% across most Facilities Services shops that provides billable services to UH departments. This will provide support to both the minimum wage and indirect material price increase.

The table of shop billing rates for FY23 is provided below. There is no cost to departments for regular ongoing maintenance requests for state funded space. However, services outside of routinely scheduled repairs and maintenance are billable to the campus customer. 

The Minor In-House Construction (MIC) team underwent a third party business review in 2021. FY23 is the second phase of the rate adjustment. This rate is independent of the normal trade shop rates for work order completion.
