Indirect rate application Roberts, Kevin L. 08 Nov 2001 14:42 EST

My institution has some development prospects that will give money to fund
research but, they want a maximum 10% indirect rate applied.  I have been
asked if there are "...any government or other legal issues with not
applying the same indirect rate to all grants".  I believe the answer to the
question is no since we currently have various indirect rates applied to our
various industry/commercial/foundation awards and a different rate applied
to our federal awards.  However, being relatively new to my position and to
the field, I don't know where to go to get a definitive answer to the
question.  Any help you can give would be appreciated.
