Facilities & Administrative (F&A) Cost Rates (Indirect Cost)
For periods after 6/30/2020, use same rates and conditions as those cited for fiscal year ending June 30, 2020, until the rate agreement is amended.

Project Type Effective Dates Rates
On-Campus Organized Research 07/01/2016 – 06/30/2020 53.5%
Off-Campus Organized Research 07/01/2016 – 06/30/2020 26.0%
On-Campus Instruction 07/01/2016 – 06/30/2020 50.0%
Off-Campus Instruction 07/01/2016 – 06/30/2020 26.0%
On-Campus Other Sponsored Activities 07/01/2016 – 06/30/2020 47.0%
Off-Campus Other Sponsored Activities 07/01/2016 – 06/30/2020 26.0%

MTDC Base: F&A rates above are applied to a Modified Total Direct Cost (MTDC) base as defined in the current Rate Agreement.

Definition of Off-Campus: The off-campus rate is applicable to those projects that are conducted in facilities not owned, leased or operated by the University. If the project is conducted in leased space and lease costs are directly charged to the project, then the off-campus rate must be used. A project is considered off-campus if more than 50% of its salaries and wages are incurred at an off-campus facility. If a project is determined to be off-campus, it shall be considered wholly off-campus. Separate on and off-campus rates will not be used for a single project.

Clinical Trial Rate: The University will accept a 25% Total Direct Cost (TDC) F&A rate for clinical trials that meet the eligibility requirements and use the standard University agreement. The University must ensure that federal sponsors do not in any way subsidize the indirect costs of other sponsors. The clinical trial F&A cost rate of 25% Total Direct Costs is a fair rate and adequately reimburses the University for the F&A costs associated with conducting clinical trials. Studies not meeting all the eligibility criteria or those studies not using the standard agreement or similar terms will be budgeted at the full on-campus research F&A cost rate, including federally funded clinical trials.

Fringe Benefit Rates:
ERE (Employee Related Expenses) 07/01/17 - 06/30/18
UA Employees Full-Benefit: 32.0%
Faculty Ancillary: 22.8%
Classified Temporary: 17.8%
Student Employees: 2.2%
Graduate Assistants: 13.0%

See the Financial Services Office, Employee Related Expense (ERE) Rates page for more detailed information.

See the Archived Rate Agreements for more detailed information. The rate agreement date changes every year before the beginning of the fiscal year (July 1) when the fringe benefit rates are negotiated.

Graduate Assistant Tuition Remission: As of 06/16/2015 Tuition Remission is included as a mandatory benefit budgeted separate and distinct from ERE/fringe benefits, usually in the Other category of operations. It is still excluded from indirect cost calculations.
