Color Page Charges
Agreeing to pay color page charges is at the discretion of each individual Program at the Ames Laboratory. If a publisher charges for color and you need to have all or some of your figures printed in color, please have Tessa Lemons prepare a purchase order, provide proper justification, and she will have your Program Director sign it. You must obtain the Program Directorâ€™s signature when requesting payment of color page charges even if the purchase order amount falls within your signature authority limit. The Program Directorâ€™s signature on the PO indicates that they are willing to pay for color page charges.
If you need to pre-pay a journal for color page charges, please send your request to Tessa Lemons, and she will prepare a memo and seek approval from the Chief Operations Officer. Once approved, you will still need to prepare a purchase order. The payment of color charges by p-card is unallowable.
