Understanding Indirect Costs
Indirect costs are a topic of discussion on campus and across the country. These costs are also known as Facilities and Administrative Costs (F&A) to reflect the broad categories that make up indirect costs. There is often some misunderstanding about what indirect costs are, how they are calculated, and how they are used. The Association of American Universities has created two short and helpful documents, Breaking Down the Costs of Federal Research at Universities and Frequently Asked Questions, that address some common issues. Please contact RSP for other questions.
