It is the University's policy to require the inclusion of full F&A cost recovery on all proposals for external funding, except gifts. Unless a sponsor has a published policy requiring a lower F&A rate or disallowing F&A, deviation from this policy is not permitted without special approval from the Vice Provost for Research.
PreAward Roles and Responsibilities
- Supplies documentation of the sponsor's published F&A rate to ORS; or
- If Sponsor does not have a designated F&A policy, then the DEPT requests a waiver of F&A rate policy.
- Reviews waiver request and approves if appropriate.
- Processes proposal with lowered F&A Rate.
