Facility & Administration Costs (Indirect Cost Rates)

Indirect Cost Rates (F&A):

The negotiated indirect cost rate agreement with DHHS is based on 51.5% for Research and Instruction projects and 34% for Other Sponsored Projects. The Off campus rate is 26% off-campus of Modified Total Direct Costs (MTDC). MTDC are all budget costs excluding capital equipment and equipment fabrication, capital building modification/renovation, tuition, stipends, scholarships, and subcontract amounts in excess of $25,000 (indirect is calculated on the first $25,000 of each subcontract). The "Off-Campus" rate is used when the majority of activity is performed in facilities not owned or maintained by UTA and rent is paid by UTA for the use of those facilities.
