Sponsored projects include scholarships, contracts and cooperation agreements adopted by Oklahoma State University for research, teaching and other projects. The cost of each sponsored project consists of direct and indirect costs, also known as Facilities and Administration ( F-A). Direct costs are costs that can be attributed relatively easily and with great accuracy to a sponsored project. These costs generally include wages, wages, benefits, equipment, supplies and travel related to sponsored work. On the other hand, the Costs R-A represents the cost of the university-funded project for the provision of common services, facilities and administrative infrastructure that are needed to support all projects and therefore cannot be easily attributed to a specific project, program or research grant. The university will meet a rate of R D less than our rate negotiated by the Federal Union if the sponsorship agency publishes the cap in its guidelines. In these cases, research and development is calculated on the basis of total direct costs (TDCs) without exclusion, unless otherwise stated. The research and development rate is traded as a single global rate and not as a component. The breakdown reflected here is determined by the University`s Recognition Service, the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), and should be considered roughly incorporated. Facilities and Administrative (R-A rates) Negotiation Agreement.

For projects funded by non-profit organizations and foundations, indirect costs are reimbursed at the authorized rate. The university accepts the policy published by the promoter regarding eligible indirect costs. The difference between the negotiated rate allowed and assessed and the authorized rate is considered a cost-sharing obligation by the Office of the Vice President of Research and Partnerships (OVPRP). The common basis for calculating the indirect rate of indirect costs is the total total cost (MTDC), i.e. the total direct cost without equipment, investment costs, patient care costs, study mission, rental costs for facilities outside the site, scholarships and scholarships, and the share of each sub-grant and subcontractor of more than $25,000. www.irs.gov/tax-professionals/standard-mileage-rates, federal rates must be mentioned. If the trip does not lead to a city/place, check the chart for the most appropriate fare. For all activities carried out in establishments that are not in the possession of the establishment and for which the rent is allocated directly to the (s) project (s), the off-campus rate applies.

If more than 50% of a project is carried out off-campus, the A-campus fee applies to the entire project. You must specify whether the project is a search, instruction or other sponsored activity, and choose the rate for the associated campus. Our research and development rate agreement contains the negotiated price, which is summarized below. There are a few exceptions to these rates and if you have any questions, you should contact your professional for scholarships and contracts. If circumstances require that travel is below an official rate, you justify why this happens (for example. B be able to stay with a parent or share resources among members of the research team). There are also some accepted differences for the inclusion of additional resources, such as increased security needs. Federal regulations provide for the coverage of these costs and require rigorous costing. The university of Oklahoma-Norman Vice President of Research and Partnerships policy is to require full reimbursement of indirect costs at the applicable rate approved by the Federal Union for all externally funded projects, including research, public service, training and teaching contracts, and contracts.
