Federal vs. Industry F&A Rates

  • 1.  Federal vs. Industry F&A Rates

    Posted 03-21-2019 14:50
    Good Afternoon NACCA Members.

    A colleague asks:

    "Are there any universities that charge Corporate/Industry F&A rates that are less than the Federal negotiated rate (MTDC)?  If yes, is it in your rate agreement? Is there any precedent for allowability of a lower rate for Corporate/Industry?"

    Please feel free to email me back directly or respond to the thread.  I will share the responses with the person inquiring.  Thanks.

    We use the same rate for corporate sponsors as the feds. Reason being that the feds don't like to be charged a higher rate than other entities. On the other hand, if your corporate rate is higher than your federal rate, the companies don't like that, either.
