Indirect Cost Rates SUZANNE LIBERTY 19 Mar 1996 09:53 EST

Are there universities who have established different indirect cost
rates for different kinds of sponsored projects? For example, we have
one indirect cost rate for on campus, and one for off campus.

Do any of you have one rate for "research", and one for
"educational/curricular/software development" kinds of sponsored
projects.  The latter would be a lower rate, presumably because the
work does not use laboratory overhead. Who determines the indirect
cost category for the proposal?

Any guidance you can provide would be appreciated. Thanks!
