Re: Subcontractor Costs Rhodes, Kris E 22 Sep 2004 17:14 EST

Hi Greg,

You should treat the entire cost of the subcontract as a direct cost in your institution's budget.  You will only charge F&A on the first $25,000 of the subcontract.  Here are two examples that may make it clearer -

If the subcontract is $12,000 direct cost and $6,000 in indirect the total cost in year one for budget purposes is $18,000.  You will apply your F&A to entire $18,000.

If the subaward is the same in year two, you should only charge F&A on $7,000.

I assume you are with a non-profit the referenced for the subaward cap on F&A recovery is addressed in A-122 D.3.f under the Multiple Allocation Method for distributing F&A discussion.  The key is that the circular does not reference just direct cost as the base for distributing, it states the first $25,000 of the subaward.

	I'm working on a R01 application and need some help answering a question
	about how to treat subcontractor's F&A.  The question is: do I treat the
	subcontractor's total expenses (direct and F&A) as my direct expense, or
	just their direct costs?
