|New facilities and administrative rates set for sponsored programs|
UND has negotiated a new F&A rate agreement for sponsored programs effective retroactive to July 1, 2005. Following are the rates that should be used immediately for new competing proposals:
Research on-campus, 35.00%
EERC on-campus, 50.00%
Other sponsored projects on-campus, 31.40%
Other sponsored projects off-campus, 26.00%
The University will make the following changes for FY06 for research awards received with a begin date after July 1, 2005. Grants and Contracts Administration staff will manually adjust the F&A expenditures downward to reflect the negotiated 35 percent rate vs. the provisional rate of 39.60 percent. The new rate of 35.00 percent will be input into the system and F&A will calculate at that rate going forward. This will have no effect on supplements and add-ons to awards that began before July 1, 2005.
For awards classified as other sponsored projects with a begin date of July 1, 2005, the University will leave the rate at 30.00 percent for FY06. Effective July 1, 2006 the 31.40 percent rate will be charged on these awards.
If you have any questions, please contact the staff in Grants and Contracts at 777-4151.
