    Dear NACCA Community,

    Do you have burning questions you need answered by Federal experts, but haven't had an avenue to ask anyone?  We are now collecting questions for our Federal Panel to answer at NACCA 2019 in New Orleans!

    Please send your questions to NACCAFedPanel@..., and they will all be compiled by the Program Committee to be shared anonymously with the Panel for discussion.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone at NACCA November 5-8, 2019!

    From the September 13, 2019 NSF audit report no. 19-1-017, Finding 3: Inappropriate Application of Indirect Costs states that F&A is not allowed to be applied to equipment rental expenses. The auditor's justification for considering equipment rental and MTDC exclusion is the language in the NICRA says "rental costs" are an exclusion and does not specify that this applies only to building rental. Is this a change in the definition of the MTDC exclusion for rental costs?

    At our last NICRA negotiation, we clarified with our cognizant agency that the intent was rental of space only.  Thus, we asked that the MTDC clause in our agreement be revised to say "rental of offsite facilities" (previously just "rental costs"), in order to avoid future internal & external misinterpretation.

    Wouldn't it be great if HHS-CAS and ONR made "rental of offsite facilities" part of their standard language in rate agreements?

    Is this a question/request for our Federal panel at the upcoming NACCA conference in New Orleans?
