In January 2011, the University of South Florida and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (the federal oversight agency) reached an agreement on the rates of facilities and administrative fees for the USF and its regional institutions. The current agreement of 11 July 2017 extends tariffs and conditions until 30 June 2020. Everything you need to create a budget for your project, from calculating staff costs to ancillary benefits, travel and more. These costs may be included if they are an integral part of the sponsored project, they are explicitly included in the sponsorship price budget or prior written authorization from the sponsor has been obtained. For Florida state agencies, 10% on TDC; Florida SSE universities, 10% on TDC for Florida State Agency projects and rates applicable for federal projects; Florida local authorities, 25% on TDC; for hydrag districts, 25% on TDCs; 20% for students support/teaching on TDC. Current tuition and tuition fees are available here. The amount of education costs taken into account must be estimated on the basis of the same percentages of participation as for the calculation of the student`s salary. Specific projects may include costs that are assessed only for apprentices or program participants. These costs may include: rates of pay must be calculated on the basis of actual wage increases that cannot be granted solely because a sponsored project is being developed.
The summer salary must not exceed one third of the annual academic base for three months of work (the National Science Foundation limits summer aid to 2 months). The increase in the cost of living should be calculated for each year after the first fiscal year with a rate of no more than 3%. Indirect costs are applied to all items when this database is used. There is no exclusion. The entire direct cost base is used for grants and contracts of non-federal support agencies. There are different rates for different non-federal authorities. See below the most current and appropriate indirect cost rates for federal data. The university`s policy is to request full indirect cost funding for all grant and contract proposals. Non-federal indirect cost rates are as follows: the University of Chicago`s cost agreement with the federal government provides that the cost rates (often referred to as “indirect”) in the agreement are used in proposals submitted to federal promotion organizations. Only reasonable rates set in the negotiated R and D rate agreement should be indicated/used in households. An application for a waiver of the UCF federal award under our collective agreement may be sought for consideration if a proposed project falls within the eligible categories. A reduced rate of 10% is assessed if the application is approved and applies to project administrative costs.
On October 28, 1987, the university`s director and vice-president of research and Argonne National Laboratory issued a memorandum outlining and explaining the university`s indirect cost rates for non-federal grants and contracts. “In the absence of written guidance on administrative costs and in accordance with University of Chicago policy, administrative costs were included to the tune of 20% of the total direct cost. If the (foundation/association/organisation) has a published directive on the provision of administrative costs, we ask that the notification of this directive be included in the market notice.” Travel expenses related to conferences, workshops, on-site visits or other trips required to complete the project are generally eligible direct costs.
