Administrative costs will be calculated at a 5% flat rate of the net fee invoiced. Inclusive within the flat rate are expenses incurred for telecommunication, database usage, and secretarial work such as print and graphics support. In addition, other expenses incurred in connection with the provision of services will also be invoiced. These particularly include, but are not limited to, expenses for travel and external providers based on actual costs incurred.
