Re: Indirect Costs on Subcontracts Tania H. Clucas 28 Feb 2001 13:30 EST

Eleanor -

I've done it - we had a sub at U Texas, and when our rate was 50%, and the
TX rate at the time was 51% or 53%. I just remember pointing that out when
our faculty whined about the F&A rate. We also deal with a good deal of
pass through funds here, as I work with the NURP and Sea Grant Programs,
and we have sub-awards with rates all over the place, some of which are
higher than our current rate (51.3% MTDC).

As long as it is their appropriate rate, as approved by their cognizant
agency, there shouldn't be a regulatory problem, to my reckoning.

Good luck!

 Accountability and accounting are not the same thing
