Guidelines on the Use of Facilities and Administrative (Indirect) Cost Recovery Reimbursement
Facility & Administration (F&A) costs are indirect costs which are necessary to support research and other sponsored projects, but which cannot be readily assigned to individual projects. Utilization of F&A cost recovery is restricted to uses that enhance the university’s academic and research efforts. More specifically, their use is limited to “scholarly development of faculty/staff/ students, support of campus infrastructure, or expansion of research.” F&A cost recovery may not be used for PI compensation. As with any guidance, our University policies and applicable laws and sponsor regulations should also be followed when utilizing these resources.
Deposit Procedures Related to Research
All cash receipts related to an externally funded sponsored project must be coordinated through Research Accounting Services. All grants, contracts, subcontracts, consulting and other purchased service agreements that support basic and applied research, demonstration/evaluation, curriculum development, training, professional development, and professional and community service activities, including clinical service, are considered sponsored projects.
