(August 16, 2018) – The UTSA Facilities reimbursable shop rates for fiscal year 2019 will be effective September 1, 2018, with no increase from the previous year.  The shop rates reimburse Facilities for the cost of providing Premium Services, previously called Departmental Services.  Premium Services are those for which Facilities does not receive a budget allocation and must be funded by the requesting department.  Examples of Premium Services include, but not limited to, vehicle maintenance, event and moving support, services provided to Auxiliary units, and minor office renovations.

Shop rates are based on the actual average pay and benefits of the Facilities employees performing the work.  Worked performed by Facilities is typically done during regular business hours.  However, work performed during non-routine hours to accommodate the customer’s requirements or respond to an emergency is billed at one and a half times the regular shop rate.  Rates include the cost of labor, fringe benefits, and a $2.00 per hour incidental charge for consumable supplies such as nails, bolts, and hand tools that cannot be easily charged to individual work orders.
