||Facilities and Administrative Rates for July 1, 2007 through June 30, 2010
New F&A rates have now been formally established for the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
The rates for the period July 1, 2007 through June 30, 2010 are as follows:
|On-Campus Public Service
|Off-Campus All Programs
These rates were audited by the Department of Health and Human Services, Division
of Cost Allocation.
When preparing extramural budgets, please remember that under MTDC (Modified Total
Direct Costs) the applicable F&A rate is applied against all budget items
except equipment, capital alterations and renovations, subagreement
costs in excess of $25,000 per agreement, equipment and space rental costs, scholarships
and fellowships, tuition remission, and patient care costs.
The University will be applying the new rates under the same principles as have
been traditionally used. Due to the number of active programs and pending applications
that include previously negotiated F&A rates, a transition from the old to
the new rates will be administered as follows:
- All applications submitted after receipt of this memo should use the new
rates effective immediately.
- Rates included in applications submitted prior to receipt of this memo will
be accepted by the University for the life of that non-competing segment unless
the Sponsor increases the indirect cost rate to the new rate and provides
the additional funding.
- Rates currently in effect on all active awards will be continued for the
balance of the funded period. In addition, non-competing continuation applications
or other requests to obtain access to previously committed support under these
awards may continue to use these rates.
Your consistent use of the appropriate F&A rate will be appreciated. See the RSP web site at https://rsp.wisc.edu/rates for more information concerning F&A policy and rate information by sponsoring agency.
Questions concerning F&A rates on proposals and awards should be directed to your School/College Research Administrator or your Pre-Award Grant and Contract Specialist in Research and Sponsored Programs. Questions concerning active projects should be directed to your School/College Research Administrator or the appropriate Post-award Accountant in Research and Sponsored Programs.
