Cost Information

Cost Estimate

Investigators intending to use OCTRI resources and services to start-up or carry out a study must budget for these resources at the time of the funding application.  

The OCTRI Research Navigator Program will work with the investigator and the OCTRI program(s) to identify the resource(s) to be utilized and to develop an accurate cost-estimate.  Investigators should submit an online request and indicate that they plan to utilize OCTRI research services to implement their study if funded.

Assistance with Budget Section of Proposals

OCTRI’s budget experts can also assist investigators with the budget section of the proposal, including analysis of personnel and procedural costs across the entire project. Investigators can request this service regardless of whether they plan to use OCTRI resources for the project. Please note that OCTRI charges for this service.
