Costs, Billing and Payments.
Under the terms of the Non-Proprietary Agreement, Users may use the facility at no charge. However, in carrying out an experiment, there is sometimes the need for supplies that are not provided for free. This provision merely covers such circumstances.
Prior to your experiment coming to SLAC, there needs to be an understanding between the facility and you about what specialist supplies and additional support is required. The facility will estimate the costs associated with this. If the estimate is greater than zero, you will need to set up an account at SLAC to handle paying for the support or supplies.
