Important information about SF State's multi-year Facilities and Administrative (indirect cost) rate agreement:
San Francisco State University has a multi-year Facilities and Administrative (indirect cost) rate agreement with the federal government. This agreement specifies the F&A cost rates to be applied to awards from federal and non-federal sponsors.
The rates specified in the agreement are as follows:
On-campus research: 54.0% until 6/30/2015;
On-campus instruction: 46.0% until 6/30/2015;
Other on-campus sponsored activities: 27.6% until 6/30/2015.
Off-campus research, instruction, or other sponsored activities: 26.0%.
Exceptions to these rates occur when a funding agency places a cap on the F&A rate. In this case, ORSP must have written guidelines from the funding agency stating that there is a limit on F&A costs.
If you would like to discuss any variance from the above rates, you must speak directly with Alison Sanders, Director for Research and Sponsored Programs (firstname.lastname@example.org or 415-405-3943).
