User Fees

The User Fee programs help the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to fulfill its mission of protecting the public health and accelerating innovation in the industry. The Office of Financial Management (OFM) is responsible for the financial management of the user fee programs. OFM maintains an accounts receivable system used for user fee invoicing, collections, reporting, and data maintenance.

To the left are links to all of the FDA's user fee programs.
