14 CFR 1214.803 - Reimbursement policy.
(a) Reimbursement basis. (1) This policy is established for the second phase of STS operations (U.S. Government fiscal years 1986, 1987, and 1988).
(2) Standard flight price. During this phase, customers covered by subpart 1214.1 or subpart 1214.2 shall reimburse NASA for standard Spacelab services an amount which is a pro rata share of:
(i) The appropriate dedicated flight price for the customer's Spacelab mission.
(ii) The standard price for use of the selected Spacelab elements during the second phase of STS operations.
(3) The price shall be held constant for flights during this phase of STS operations.
(4) Reimbursement policies for subsequent phases of STS operations will be developed after NASA has obtained more operational experience.
(b) Escalation. Payments shall be escalated in accordance with the Shuttle policy.
(c) Customers shall reimburse NASA an amount which is the sum of the customer's standard flight price and the price for all optional services provided.
(d) Earnest money. For those customers required to pay earnest money by the Shuttle policy, the total earnest money payment per payload for Spacelab payloads (including Shuttle services) shall be the lesser of $150,000 or 10% of the customer's estimated standard flight price. Earnest money will be applied to the first payment for standard services made for each payload by the customer or will be retained by NASA if a Launch Services Agreement is not signed.
