Understanding your billing?

Recharges consist of all materials, supplies and time dedicated to your job request. This includes time spent working on site and in the shops, traveling to and from the work site and travel into town to pick up supplies. Tools, vehicle usage, supervision and any other employee-related expense is included in the hourly recharge rate.

When should I expect my bill?

Recharges are typically received by the end of the month following the month in which the project was completed. For example, if a project ends on the 28th, a bill can be expected within a month. If the project ends on the 3rd, it will be closer to seven weeks before a recharge is issued.

Who do I contact if I have a billing discrepancy/question?

All requests to review a recharge should be submitted to your departmental Business Officer. Review requests must be submitted promptly and no later than 4 weeks after the charge.
