Effective July 1, 2015, indirect cost recovery will be allocated as follows:

Facilities and Administrative costs (F&A), indirect costs, represent grant expenses that cannot be easily identified with any specific sponsored project but are incurred for common or joint objectives related to all sponsored projects. The F&A rate charged to sponsored projects is to recover the facilities and administrative costs already expended by the university.

The Indirect Cost Recovery Distribution will be as follows:

Indirect Cost Recovery Allocation (Research Incentive Funds – RIF) Grants (non-Center) Grants (thru Center)
All Colleges/Units 40% 32%
Office of the Vice Provost for Research and Economic Development (VPRED) 55% 44%
Provost’s Office 5% 4%
Centers and Institutes 0% 20%

The distribution of these funds within each college will be based on the college’s policy for distribution. The Research Accounting Office will distribute the funds on a quarterly basis.
