Facilities and Administrative Cost Rates

The federal government has recently approved new F&A cost rates (also known as indirect costs) for federal sponsored programs at the University of Chicago.  The attached document provides details of the new rates and implementation guidance for budgeting and charging the rates on federal proposals and awards.  The implementation of these new rates will not impact the direct costs awarded and proposed prior to this announcement.

This information has been shared with Dean and University officials.
