Lodging and Per Diem Rates

Lodging is reimbursed at actual cost and Per Diem at the rates used by the federal government. Rates vary based on destination. When the city is unknown, it is suggested that you budget Per Diem at $64 for domestic travel to most large cities.

Calculating F & A costs for your proposal

If your proposal involves two or more fiscal years, budget the rate for the full year that is applicable on the first day of the proposal budget period. For example, if a five-year research proposal is being submitted with project dates from March 1, 2016 to February 28, 2020, use the 56% research rate for the period March 1, 2016 to February 28, 2018. Use the 57.5% rate for the remaining budget years. Rates are not split within a budget year.

Base is modified total direct costs (MTDC), consisting of all salaries and wages, fringe benefits, materials, supplies, services, travel, and sub-grants and subcontracts up to the first $25,000 of each sub-grant or subcontract (regardless of the period covered by the sub-grant or subcontract). Modified total direct costs shall exclude equipment, capital expenditures, charges for patient care, tuition remission, rental costs of off-site facilities, scholarships, and fellowships as well as the portion of each sub-grant or subcontract in excess of $25,000.

For Organized Research projects on campus, University Responsibility Centers (RCs) will receive 53.5 percentage points and the remainder will be received by University Administration. For Other Sponsored Agreements on campus, the RCs will receive 28.9 of the 32 percentage points. For all other rates, the RCs will receive 100% of the F&A reimbursement.
