Most federal agencies and other sponsoring organizations pay the university for indirect costs in addition to the direct costs of a grant or contract award. Thus, indirect costs are the related costs of using the University's facilities and administrative support that cannot be claimed as direct costs.

The University of Cincinnati, like all other US institutions, has an agreement with the federal government on the rate of reimbursable indirect costs associated with research.

Given the current national conversation regarding these indirect costs, the office of Research has created this web page to provide additional information around this topic for the UC community.

A cost-type research and development contract (including a grant) with a university, college, or other educational institution may provide for payment of reimbursable indirect costs on the basis of predetermined fixed-percentage rates applied to the total of the reimbursable direct costs incurred or to an element of the Payment of indirect costs of research and development by college and university contractors.

book of the reimbursable direct costs. When universities perform research on behalf of the federal government, they incur costs – Facilities and Administrative (F&A) costs, commonly called indirect costs.

F&A costs encompass: the maintenance of sophisticated, high-tech laboratories and research facilities; utilities such as lighting and heating. Indirect costs (also referred to as “facilities and administrative” or “F&A”) are infrastructure costs that are not directly related to the project itself but are required to conduct the research and are critical to the success of the project and organization as a whole.

Indirect costs would include line items such as payroll. F&A costs – also referred to as “indirect costs” – are essential costs of conducting research.

The federal government’s longstanding recognition and payment of these costs has helped U.S colleges and universities build and support the required research infrastructure that has made the American research enterprise the best in the world.

Effective January 1, the university recovers indirect costs from all new or renewed research funding agreements at a flat minimum rate of 25%. Exceptions are Tri-Council grants or rates agreed to by the university through the Vice-President Research.

Indirect Costs/Facilities and Administrative Costs (F&A) indirect costs are real. The University is dependent upon the recovery of F&A costs in order to maintain the infrastructure necessary to support sponsored activities.

The maximum amount that can be charged to the grant for indirect costs is $, which is $7, ($8, minus $) times percent. Does an LEA have to charge the entire amount of indirect costs allowed by its indirect cost rate.

An LEA may choose to claim less than the amount of indirect costs allowed by its indirect cost rate. If software is developed for use in research and development activities, charge the associated costs to expense as incurred, without exception.

Wages. Charge the costs of salaries, wages, and related costs to expense as incurred. In that case, if the federal government awards a university $, for the direct research portion of a grant then it also awards $, for F&A costs, for a total of $,File Size: KB.

Indirect Costs of Research. The central and departmental administrative costs incurred by the University to support research that is not attributable to specific research projects.

These costs include: 1) including but not Research Facilities: limited to the renovation and maintenance of research facilities, equipment, and associated operating.

The College of Natural Sciences receives from the University 25% of all indirect costs (IDC) generated from the research grants that were awarded to CNS PIs in the previous calendar year.

Indirect cost payments are actually reimbursements for costs that universities have already paid for expenses incurred in conducting federally-sponsored research.

Universities and the federal government both contribute to the cost of supporting the infrastructure and environment necessary to keep labs running and research advances coming.
