Competitive charge rates

Forest Research conducts both its core research programmes and its additional advisory and consultancy projects for external clients using the same charging strategy:

  • This charging strategy is to recover from its customers its full operating costs, including the cost of overheads and capital
  • This approach is common across most government executive agencies, and Forest Research follows the specific rules laid out in the relevant UK government guidelines
  • All customers are expected to pay the same full cost recovery charges.

Having compared our charging rates with competitors, we are confident that Forest Research offers good value for money.
