Fees and Invoicing
Management fees, are assessed based on the content of the proposal, and therefore vary from project to project. You should discuss fees with your RDC analyst once your proposal is approved. The RDC cannot provide an estimate of fees without an approved proposal. Please see below for our rates for setup and each mode of access.
If you have additional questions regarding fees, please contact email@example.com .

Agencies that provide funds to support NCHS data systems or sponsor survey supplements may have a $3,000 waiver. Researchers should contact their agency's point of contact with NCHS to apply for a waiver. At the time of proposals submission you must reference your waiver as a funding source. You will be required to show documentation before you access the data.
Groups sponsored by Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) can only use NCHS RDC- Washington, DC Location. These groups must list "ASPE sponsored" as the funding source in the proposal. For more information, contact ASPE.
Users of data hosted by the RDC should read the hosted data page for details about fees. The DHHS restricted page provides a complete list of hosted data products.
