If you are approved for access to BLS restricted data at an FSRDC, you will be required to pay a fee for each year of FSRDC access. Currently, fees are not required for other modes of access, such as onsite at BLS, through the BLS virtual data enclave (VDE), or offsite under a licensing agreement.
For non-federal researchers, fees can be paid by electronic transfer or credit card.
BLS will bill projects funded directly by Federal agencies through the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Intra-Governmental Payment and Collection (IPAC) system.
