How do I define projected costs for my lab?
Lab Managers and PIs may define how much money a lab member is allowed to charge. These are called projected costs. Projected costs can be further defined in two ways:
- Auto-approval Threshold: Total dollar amount over which a manager must approve service center requests.
- Cost overage buffer: How much a lab or lab member may charge over and above the original auto-approved quote without PI or Lab Manager approval. If the cost of the service exceeds this buffer, you will receive and email notification.
Step 1: Access your lab
Hover your mouse on My Labs on your home page and select a lab. (Figure 1)
Step 2: Enter a dollar amount for each field
Step 3: Save changes
Click save settings to save the updated information.
