F&A Costs (Indirect Costs) (NEW)
July 16, 2 to 3 p.m., United Hospital Lecture Hall, School of Medicine and Health Sciences
It is the policy of the University of North Dakota to recover full F&A Costs (indirect costs) as defined by our federal negotiated rate agreement. But, do you ever wonder why the University is so adamant about this policy? This training session will focus on answering that question by addressing other questions such as (1) what are F&A costs; (2) what do the F&A costs pay for; (3) what if some sponsors limit the amount of F&A costs we can ask for; (4) why do we have different F&A cost rates for different activities; and (5) how often does the F&A cost rate change. Presenter: Corey Graves.
