Your lab’s personal performance dashboard

"We think it’s a good value because the audit, the recognition and the hands-on real time demonstrations that you get from their people. They are good at putting techs at ease."

Tests and Fees

Assessment Fees

The Laboratory Assessment Program charges fees based on the time needed to complete an assessment. The laboratory will be invoiced after the final on-site assessment report is released.

Base Fee ($750)
A base fee of $750 will be charged for every on-site assessment regardless of scope or time needed to complete.  This fee covers the administrative costs associated with scheduling and traveling to the assessment location, as well as the process to review, send, and post the assessment report.

Half-Day Fee ($1,225)
A fee of $1,225 will be charged for each half-day (approximately four hours), or portion thereof, for each fully-trained assessor in the field assessing.  Laboratories will not be charged the costs of a second assessor if we are training or performing a competency check on our personnel. 

Note: Most assessments only require one assessor, however some assessments with large scopes require two.

Out-of-Sequence Fees
When a laboratory receives an assessment outside the normal AASHTO re:source tour schedule, an additional fee for the air travel and/or vehicle rental may be applied. Please contact us if interested in an out-of-sequence assessment to receive an estimate.
Cancellation Fees
Postponing or canceling an on-site assessment after five days of receipt of the assessment announcement letter may result in an additional fee of up to $1000, plus expenses for changes to air travel, lodging, and/or vehicle rental.
International Laboratories (Including Canada)
International Laboratories
International laboratories include any laboratory outside of the continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. In addition to the fees described above, international laboratories may be subject to additional charges depending upon the location and any extraordinary travel costs. International laboratories interested in an on-site assessment should contact AASHTO re:source staff for specific details and a cost estimate for services.

All quality management system documentation must be provided in English, and an appropriate English translation of pertinent documentation must be provided. All on-site assessments are conducted in English. If necessary, an interpreter must be provided to facilitate the assessment. It is the responsibility of the laboratory to communicate with AASHTO re:source that an interpreter will be required prior to scheduling the assessment. All costs associated with hiring an interpreter or translating quality management system documentation will be the responsibility of the laboratory. If an assessment is scheduled without arrangements for an interpreter, and it becomes clear to AASHTO re:source management that an interpreter is in fact necessary, the assessment will be rescheduled and a $1000 cancellation fee, plus any associated travel costs incurred, will be charged to the laboratory. Out-of-sequence fees may be charged to the laboratory if rescheduling the assessment is necessary.

Canadian Laboratories
Laboratories that request an assessment to be performed in Canada will incur an additional fee of 15% of the assessment cost.
