Indirect Costs


Indirect Costs


Funding 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.)

TAMIU's 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.

NOTE:  ONLY ONE OF THE RATES MAY BE USED IN PREPARING THE PROPOSAL.
