Renovation and Infrastructure Cost Estimates (RICE) for CFI applications

Facilities Planning (FP) supports the Institutional Programs Office (IPO) with the CFI submission process by facilitating Renovation & Infrastructure Cost Estimates (RICE).

What is RICE?

A Renovation & Infrastructure Cost Estimate (RICE) includes the scope and cost of the work required to make the research lab space ready to accommodate the proposed new equipment.

All CFI proposals must be reviewed by Facilities Planning to ensure that any potential infrastructure upgrades are identified and priced. RICEs are separate from, and do not include, research equipment costs.
