Office of Research Core Administration billing systems

The Office of Research Core Administration supports billing for services provided by research support cores. Services are billed to a current PTAO. Copayments from the Cancer Center and Diabetes Center are automatically applied to grants on approved lists of centers providing copayments.

Investigators, administrators and research core personnel can view and track billing data through a web interface. Final bills are normally submitted in the middle of the month for the previous month's services.

In September2014, we will start a transition to the iLab program for billing. iLab uses technology from the CORES system.

Several cores will transfer to iLab each month, which will result in bills generated by CORES and iLab until the change is complete.
