Approved Facilities & Administrative Cost Rates FY 15 – FY 17

The following on-campus facilities and administrative cost rates have been approved by the US Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), RIT’s cognizant federal agency, to be in effect from 7/1/14-6/30/17. 
Organized Research
Other Sponsored Activities


* Other Sponsored activities refers to programs and projects financed by Federal and non-Federal agencies and organizations which involve the performance of work other than instruction and organized research. Examples of such programs and projects are health service projects and community service programs.

Generally, the new rates will be in effect for awards that begin on or after the date approved by DHHS. If the proposal was submitted with a previous F&A rate, during the negotiation period SRS will request that the sponsor adjust the budget to reflect the new rate.

For existing awards, the rate in effect at the time of the initial award will be charged to the grant/contract for the life of the award (Note: for this purpose, "Life" means each competitive segment of a project). Rates for existing awards will change to the rate in effect at the beginning of the next competitive period.
