Service (Recharge) Center Rate Reviews

    I've recently been tasked with helping review service (recharge) center rates for my institution.  A recurring question from service center business managers is:
    "What is an allowable cost?"
    Does your institution have plain-language guidance for allowable costs you'd be willing to share?
    I'm aware of the federal guidance in OMB Circular A-21 (now Title 2 in the CFR) however that language can be cryptic for new staff.
    I'm looking for easy-to-follow guidance that can help new business managers in setting up rates.
    Thank you.
