Project Management Fees
Dotted Line
In FY 2010 the Campus Management and Operations committee (CMO) approved an increase in the institutionally managed project management fee from 3% of Construction Cost to 4% of Total Project Cost. The change was necessary to sustain appropriate project management staffing levels to effectively manage projects being constructed on campus.

If you have any questions relating to the approved increase in the project management fee, please contact Facilities
Work Control at 458-4262.

Shop Rates
Dotted Line

The new UTSA Facilities reimbursable shop rates schedule for FY14 will be effective September 1, 2013. The new rates reimburse Facilities for the cost of providing departmental services. Departmental services are those for which Facilities does not receive a budget allocation and will be funded by the requesting department.

Shop rates are based on the actual average pay and benefits of Facilities employees performing the work. Rates include the cost of labor, fringe benefits, and a $2 per-hour incidental charge for supplies such as nails, bolts, and hand tools. These rates do not account for a merit increase and therefore may need to be adjusted depending upon the FY14 University Merit Policy.

The only shop rate that increased was for Housekeeping, which increased from $20.50/hr to $21.50/hr. All other Facilities shop rates remain the same as for the current year.

For additional information, go to Service Guidelines

What is included in the proposed rate?
The rate includes hourly labor, fringe and supervision. Also, a nominal charge is added for incidental supplies such as nuts, bolts, screws, and nails. We do not charge a markup for any services or supplies billed to our customers.

How does the new rate compare to others?
The proposed hourly rates are substantially lower than equivalent local service providers. Some examples of local service provider rates include but are not limited to:
     · Carpenters $65
     · Electricians $75
     · Auto Shop $60
Our rates are lower than the UT Systems campuses, too.


How often will these rates change?
The base rate will be reviewed yearly and adjusted automatically for changes to the UTSA merit plan and fringe rate plans. Every two years we will conduct a detailed review to make additional adjustments for changes to the cost of living, and construction cost index. We will notify you of rate changes during the annual budget process.
