Rates and Fees

 

  • Nightly (User Day) Rates for 2021
    • $94.44 for reservations directly billed to a UA (University of Alaska) fund-org
    • $119 for all other billing types (included overhead)
      • For proposals, we suggest adding a 2-4% increase per year
    • Billing is completed using the information provided on each individual reservation
  • Science Support and Remote Access
    • Toolik helps provide science support to researchers at the field station as well as remote access support to those who are not at the field station.  We can provide up to 40 hours of support/access per year (October 1- September 30) for free; hours beyond 40 per project per year will be charged.
    • The 2021 rate for support beyond 40 hours is $14.35 per hour.  If two people support your project for two hours, that counts as 4 hours of support and will be charged accordingly. Transportation time to and from the site is usually included in calculations.
    • Please contact uaf-iab-tfs-edc@alaska.edu With questions about project support and possible costs.
  • Fuel Accounts
    • Project vehicles can not be refueled without an active fuel account. (Vehicles provided by Toolik will usually be refueled without an account.)
    • Fuel accounts must be renewed annually
    • Unleaded gasoline and diesel are both available at cost
    • Fuel is generally billed on a monthly basis in the summer, and quarterly in the winter months. Please contact uaf-toolik-business@alaska.edu for questions about fuel billing.

  • Support via Battelle ARO contract
