|Cost-Sharing Explanation and Guidelines|
Requests for cost-sharing should be made as far in advance as possible prior to the submission of the proposal. Cost-sharing may be requested from your department, college, or the Institute. The Request for Institute Cost-Sharing form must be used in all cases, and approval must be secured from the Vice President for Research (VPR).
The type of cost-sharing requested -- cash or in-kind -- must be indicated, as well as the fiscal year in which the funds will be needed. Note that a voluntary reduction in the indirect/F&A costs charged to the sponsor is considered in-kind cost-sharing and subject to approval by the VPR. If cost-sharing is not required by the sponsor, a justification must be provided with the request.
Cost-sharing requests that are less than $10,000 may be discussed with the VPR by phone or e-mail. Cost-sharing requests that are equal to or greater than $10,000 require a face-to-face meeting of the VPR, Dean, Principal Investigator, and Senior Research Administrator from Sponsored Research Services.
