CCR Genomics Core requires a CAN number for billing. Billing is performed 3 times per year: December, April, and August. At each billing cycle, the PI and/or financial contact will receive an iLab generated “invoice” which summarizes all service requests including scope of work as well as financial details for the specified billing period. For NCI investigators, monies will be automatically taken from your budget through BMS. You should see a line item/note at the bottom of your BMS report. For Non-NCI investigators, NCI will initiate the Direct CAN Citation (DCC) process in August for all charges accrued in the Core for the entire fiscal year. Once the DCC paperwork is signed, CAN flips will be submitted through the OFM SharePoint site so that NCI is indirectly reimbursed from each non-NCI investigator. Any questions/concerns regarding this process can be directed to Melissa Shue, Basic Research ARC/CCR/NCI.
At any time, you can log-in to iLab to monitor services rendered and cost generated or you can contact the Core Manager directly to send a report. You can also name your AO or anyone else a financial contact who can track spending in iLab and who will also receive the summaries generated at billing. If you would like your AO or other financial contact to receive this billing report and can track spending, please contact the Core Manager, Liz Conner (firstname.lastname@example.org).
