Facilities and Administrative Costs

The facilities and administrative (F&A) rate is automatically generated when an expense is charged to a sponsored index. To see the F&A rate charged to your index, refer to the "Financial Reports - Budget vs Actual".  You will see “Indirect Cost Rate” in the top portion of the report.

The rate charged to your index is the lower of either the effective rate at the time of the proposal or the current rate. The university is required to negotiate this rate with the federal government at least every three years. You can review the and the current rates on our Research Facts and Figures Page.
