Equipment, study and service centre costs (publications, vessels and analytical services) are excluded from the indirect cost base. This source of funding results from the application of a negotiated percentage of indirect cost cover to grant and contract expenditure. They represent the recovery of the fair share of the institutions and the administrative costs of the university to support the activities of the program. The “F” parts of M&A include the costs of buildings and equipment, utilities, building maintenance, and university library fees. Parts “A” include central administration, school and departmental administration, and the Office of Sponsored Programs. Indirect costs are calculated by multiplying the MTDC by the indirect cost.

With the exception of the research training described above, this concept encompasses all teaching and training activities, whether credit or non-credit courses. Sponsored education and training is a specific education or training activity established by financial aid, contract or cooperation agreement. Institutions and administrative (R&A) or indirect costs are granted to reimburse the university for the costs of supporting supported research and training activities. The university`s policy is to cover all indirect costs that can be reimbursed by a public or private body. The university regularly negotiates a federal M&A reimbursement rate with the U.S.
Department of Health. The University of Richmond`s current R&A rate, which applies to salaries, salaries, and ancillary benefits, is 52 percent on campus and 23 percent off-campus, which is used when more than 50 percent of a project is completed off-campus. Faculties preparing proposals should contact the Office of Foundation, Corporate and Government Relations to verify this rate, which may change. NOTE: From now on, all bid budgets submitted for financing with an R&A rate that does not match our approved tariff agreement must be calculated on the basis of the direct total cost and not the modified direct total cost, unless otherwise stated in the invitation or tender. . . .
