sources usually indicate whether or not indirect costs are allowable. The indirect
cost rate for each institution is determined by prior negotiation with an agency
of the Federal Government. Our rate has been negotiated with the Department of
Health and Human Services. The indirect cost rate covers all expenses incurred
by the institution which can not be directly attributable to the contract/grant
(such as overhead expenses, supporting services and/or use of facilities.)
negotiated rate is 50% and is calculated against the TOTAL SALARIES AND WAGES
portion of a project budget.
However, the rate of 8% of TOTAL DIRECT COSTS of the project may be utilized if acceptable by the funding agencies. TAMIU's Facilities and Administrative (F&A) Rate Agreement from the Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) is attached.
