Data Request Charging Policy

Consistent with NCDC and other state climate offices, we must employ the following policy for charging for data.

Free:

Simple personal requests (< 30 min. time spent on request)
Educators (K-12, University/College Faculty/Staff)
Students (K-12, college)
Local, state and federal government employees

Subject to charge:

Large personal requests ( > 30 min. time spent on request)
Commercial (consulting, legal, etc.)

Rates are $50/hr, as stated in the Oregon State University fee book. Most requests take no more than an hour.

In some cases, we may waive fees. This is at the discretion of the Oregon Climate Service.

We will invoice you after we respond to the request.

Policy as of 1/1/11.
