Typically, no. The only time we would ask your department to pick up part of the tab for our services would be if the cost of materials is prohibitive. For example, if your request requires several thousand pre-printed scannable questionnaires, the cost to our office could be more than we can handle. (Our budget is very limited!) However, rest assured that IR does not charge for office time spent on College-related data requests and simple external requests — that’s why we’re here!
