The cost of such services arises from delineating the skill-mix and 'man'-hours of effort involved (domestic and expatriate personnel) and providing for supervision overhead. The costs of different skills is in the public domain and can be readily estimated. The overhead percentage, however, is a negotiated element.

The assistance comprises services which are not in the nature of IP but are needed by the licensee to accomplish its objectives.
