Facilities and Administration Costs (F&A), indirect or overhead costs are costs incurred for common or joint objectives and therefore cannot be identified readily and specifically with a particular sponsored project, an instructional activity, or any other institutional activity. For example, departmental secretaries, office supplies, classrooms, electricity, security, and other general administrative costs such as personnel, purchasing, and services of the controller’s office.
F&A Costs are negotiated with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services as the University cognizant agency and must be consistently applied to budgets both federal and non-federal. Rates include on and off campus rates for Research, Instruction, and Other. The exception to using the negotiated F&A Cost rate is when a sponsor has a documented policy limiting or disallowing F&A Cost rates. The policy must be attached to the University Transmittal Form during proposal routing.Facilities and Administration Costs, indirect or overhead costs are those costs incurred for common or joint objectives and therefore cannot be identified readily and specifically with a particular sponsored project, an instructional activity, or any other institutional activity. For example, departmental secretaries, office supplies, classrooms, electricity, security, and other general administrative costs such as personnel, purchasing, and services of the controller’s office.
The University F&A Costs rate is based on Modified Total Direct Costs (MTDC) = Total Direct Costs less equipment, capital expenditures, charges for patient care, tuition remission, rental costs of off-site facilities, scholarships, and fellowships as well as the portion of each subgrant and subcontract in excess of $25,000. These budget items are deducted from total direct costs before calculating F&A Costs.
