Change to External Consulting Fee Schedule


The Minnesota Supercomputing Institute (MSI) has revised the rate it charges external parties for consulting services. Until now, MSI has had a single $188/hour rate for all consulting. Going forward, it will have a different rate for each of two types of consulting: technical consulting and scientific consulting.

Technical consulting includes algorithm development; code optimization; development of parallel codes; development of scripts; and assistance with applied problems, software, or software packages.

Scientific consulting includes development of research topics or the carrying out of applications in genomics, bioinformatics, proteomics, etc.

For technical consulting, MSI will continue to charge $188/hour. For scientific consulting, MSI will charge $126/hour.
