02 NCAC 60B .0603          FEES FOR SERVICES

(a)  The Division charges a fee to cover costs.

(b)  These contract fees are determined by applying fixed hourly rates to the time required to perform the service and by including material costs.  Fixed hourly rates are the sum of the purchase price, maintenance cost and operating cost divided by expected lifespan plus the operator's salary.  Most contracted service fees are converted to per acre rates.  Fixed hourly rates are converted to per acre rates by multiplying the fixed hourly rate by the production rate.  Some services require a fee on a per unit basis such as per mile or per tree.  These fees are established by applying the same fixed hourly rates, time required, and material costs.

(c)  Designated Division employees, trained in such services, shall establish contract fees prior to beginning work.
