The University recently completed negotiations with the federal government and received a new Facilities & Administrative (F&A) rate agreement, effective December 11, 2018. With the new agreement, the current on-campus F&A rate of 52.5% of Modified Total Direct Costs (MTDC) will expire on June 30, 2019 and starting July 1, 2019 will be 54.5% MTDC. The new rate agreement should be referenced and the applicable rate used with all new or competing applications and proposals. As in the past, different rates apply to off-campus projects, instructional projects, training grants, corporate-funded clinical trials, and some other programs and/or sponsors.
