Subcontract Indirect Cost Rate john case 26 Oct 1996 16:44 EST
We at the Desert Research Institute (part of the Univ. &
Community College System of Nevada) are considering
changing our current subcontracting overhead rate policy.
Currently we charge 15% up to the Federal max as
prescribed by A-21. This is a lower rate than our
negotiated Federal o/h rate. This was established years
ago by our VPF&A.
I would like as much input as possible on the method or
percent (%) other universities/colleges/research
non-profits are using for charging overhead to subcontracts
(where we are the prime). I would like as many responses as
possible in order to summarize what practices (or
percents) are used across the country. If you are using
your full overhead rate up to $25K as prescribed in
A-21, let me know that too.
If anyone is interested in the results, let me know and
I'll send the summary to you.
Thank you in advance for you input. I need this
information by the end of the week.
