F&A Distribution Policy on Cross-School Grants and Contracts

In the spirit of cooperation and collaboration among all units within the University, all awards involving investigators from multiple schools and departments will be set up with subcodes and the appropriate identifying (BFR) code for each participating department or school. This practice will ensure distribution of the facilities and administrative (F&A) costs in accordance with the direct costs associated with each participating investigator, thereby providing support for departmental space and administrative costs.

It is the responsibility of the Offices of Research Support and Research Administration, working with the principal investigator’s department, to establish the appropriate subcode structure for each award.
