The July 28, 1993 memo to the accountant and budget officer of the university`s budget director and comptroller provides guidance on activities that the university considers to be sponsored projects and not for sales and educational activities. While these sponsored projects may or may not be managed by the Campus Contract and Grant Office, they must nevertheless include the current indirect cost rate to ensure full cost coverage. Some examples of these sponsored projects are that the university equipment threshold was changed on July 1, 2004, from $1,500 to $5,000. Items that cost less than $5,000 should be included in the budget as inventory and included in the MTDC database. The cost of patient care should be based on a currently effective patient care rate negotiated by DHHS or on an equivalent contract. However, to determine which positions are excluded from the MTDC base in a proposal budget as a cost of patient care, patient care costs are not included: physician fees advise; reimbursement of personal expenses (for example. B for people and patient travel) or other direct payments to patients or patients; and the cost of additional testing at facilities outside the hospital on a fee basis (. B, for example, in an independent private laboratory) or at an affiliated medical university, based on an organizational fee plan. These costs are not considered indirect costs for patient care and are taken into account in the MTDC database for calculating indirect costs applicable to the budget.

Base MTDC. In the case #1 below, the university is authorized to calculate the federally negotiated on-campus rate for organized research. The total direct cost is $100,000 and $10,000 of this amount is for equipment (an item excluded from MTDC under Berkeley`s research and development agreement with DHHS). 2. University research refers to all research and development activities that are budgeted and accounted for separately by the institution as part of an internal application of institutional resources. Academic research for the purposes of this paper must be combined with research funded through organized research. (2 CFR No. 200 Annex III.1.b) If a sponsor.

B limits a premium to $100,000 and a sponsor limits a premium to $100,000 and says that 10% of the premium can be used for indirect costs, $90,000 is allocated for a direct cost and $10,000 for indirect costs. Ten percent of the total cost can be used to cover indirect costs. Full cost coverage is needed to support the university`s physical and administrative capacity to conduct research. If indirect costs are not fully recovered, the maintenance of the university`s research capacity and infrastructure will be threatened. All sponsored agreements should share the cost of the research. For more information on campus lab agreements, see Chapter 10 under 10-251 and 10-252. [A] the research and development activity of an institution that is budgeted and accounted for separately. These collective agreements, negotiated by the federal government, which are generally effective for a period of one to five years, include indirect cost rates that can be used for organized research, teaching, other sponsored activities and other institutional activities, as well as any escalation of these rates (federal rates). Although their federally negotiated interest rates provide less recovery than actual cost coverage, the university sees our federally negotiated interest rate as a proxy for full cost coverage. The Chair has the power to authorize indirect cost exceptions to the CFO who has delegated to the Chancellor, the Vice-President – Agriculture and Natural Resources – and the Vice-President- for Research and Postgraduate Studies, the power to authorize exemptions to certain indirect cost rates.
