Facility Charges

The Facility charges user fees, depending on the type of user and the level of support and training required. The University of Sydney, together with external university and research institute users, may also choose to access the Facility via an annual subscription.

New users must register via PPMS by filling in an account creation request. The request is followed by a user meeting, training on the instrument(s) required for the project, and the completion of project risk assessments.

The University will issue a tax invoice to enable commercial users to claim back GST.
