FY25 Planning for PIs

FY25 fee changes

There are currently no planned pricing changes for FY25. OSC anticipates putting the new Cardinal cluster into production during FY25, which might result in pricing changes. We will provide more details later in the summer.

FY25 budgets: Action may be required

  • By default, the majority of budgets have an expiration of Friday, June 30, 2024.
  • Most Ohio academic clients will need to set new budgets for FY25 before June 30 to avoid service disruption, depending on the project type as detailed below. FY25 is the period of July 1, 2024 through June 30, 2025.
  • As a reminder, the project budgets can only be managed by the project PI or a project administrator designated by the PI.

Research projects - ACTION REQUIRED

If you use OSC for research, you will need to set up FY25 budgets if you have not already done so. It may be helpful to review the updated service costs FAQ page for a video explaining how to create and manage budgets and additional details about budgets, fees, and institution-specific instructions.

To review your FY24 usage, PIs and project admins can log into MyOSC and go to “Projects -> Billing Statements” in the menu and select “Current FY Billed and Un-Billed Usage (estimated)” to see the total usage from 7/1/2023 until today without applicable credits or discounts. You can use this information to estimate your projected FY25 usage. PIs can also utilize the OSCusage command.

Do the following to create your budget for each project you want to use in FY25:

  1. Log into MyOSC
  2. Open the project details
  3. Select “Create a new budget”
  4. Select “Add or replace the FUTURE budget” to set the FY25 budget
  5. Confirm your budget dates on the budget review page before submitting
  6. You will receive an email that your application has been submitted.

If you don’t have a current active budget, you will not be able to set up the FY25 budget. First, set a current budget for FY24 and then follow the instructions above. Alternatively, you can contact OSC Help.

Classroom projects

You can check the term on your classroom project by looking at the budget expiration date. Feel free to contact us at OSC Help.

Campus Champions

Campus Champion projects will expire on June 30, 2024. If you are interested in continuing in FY25, please fill out this survey or contact us at OSC Help

Ohio academic research credits

OSC will automatically issue the $1,000 annual research credit for FY25 to Ohio academic PIs when their project becomes activated. Any remaining FY24 credits will expire on June 30, 2024. 

In exchange for your credit in FY24, please assist OSC by reporting your publications, funding, and student successes. Your reports provide data we can use to help justify continuing state support and argue for expanded subsidies. Report your publications and funding on MyOSC and complete this survey to report your student successes

Commercial, nonprofit and other clients, such as condo

If you are not an Ohio academic user, no action is required; OSC manages budgets for you (or has set unlimited budgets for your projects). You can visit the FAQ to learn more about budgets. If you would like to create them for your projects to control your resource usage (optional), please contact us at OSC Help.
