A flat fee per slide was charged which included all *technical* preparation
for the final slide.  Also prior to the start of a project a cost estimate
was compiled and submitted for review/approval.  As portions of projects
were completed we submit via the grant or project number the work completed
and $$'s were deducted from that cost center.

We did do a number of different types of tests/assays and if we were
approached for a new type of assay then we would have to put together a cost
analysis based on the needs of the project.  Incorporated into that cost
would be the technical/labor component also including whatever overhead
percentage was required by the facility.

This worked out well as I had everything done 'up front' and knew what was
budgeted.  We did have to submit a quarterly report of all work/$$'s to the
government and by doing a flat fee it made life much easier.
