F&A Rates for FY '22 - FY '25

  • See email of June 16, 2022. Excerpted from a June 16 email from OSP Director Stu Taub:  

The University has recently finalized its federally negotiated F&A rate agreement with the Dept. of Health and Human Services, and this communication is to provide information regarding the application of the F&A rates from FY ‘22 through FY ‘25.  This rate agreement is different than prior rate agreements in that it employs a “stepped rate” approach for on-campus research, rather than a single negotiated rate over the four year duration of the agreement.  The University’s implementation of this rate agreement is presented in further detail below.

The four-year rate agreement, covering sponsored projects awarded between July 1, 2021 – June 30, 2025, is as follows:

  1. On-campus research, stepped rates per fiscal year period
    1. 50% = FY ‘22
    2. 49% = FY ‘23
    3. 49% = FY ‘24
    4. 49.5% = FY ‘25
  2. Training/ Instruction, rates stay constant from FY ’22 through FY ‘25, as follows:
    1. 34% for on-campus training/instruction
  3. Other Sponsored Activities, rates stay constant from FY ’22 through FY ’25, as follows:
    1. 35% for on-campus other sponsored activities
  4. Off-Campus Rate for all programs (research, training/instruction, and other sponsored activities), rates stay constant from FY ’22 through FY ’25, as follows:
    1. 26% for off-campus research, training/instruction, and other sponsored activities

Proposals are now being submitted with the new F&A rates.  The OSP budget template has been updated to reflect the new F&A rates, as well as, the updated Fringe Benefit rates for FY ’23.

  • Multi-year on-campus research proposals will have stepped rates:
    • 49% for FY ‘23 budget period
    • 49% for FY ’24 budget period
    • 49.5% for FY ’25 budget period (and beyond, until next rate agreement is negotiated)
  • On-campus Training/Instruction: 34% for all budget periods
  • On-campus Other Sponsored Activities: 35% for all budget periods
  • Off-campus, all programs: 26% for all budget periods

Implementation plan for new F&A rates on sponsored project awards: In accordance with federal Uniform Guidance (Appendix III to Part 200), the F&A rate in effect at the time of initial award shall be utilized throughout the “life of the award.”  “Life” for the purpose of this guidance means each competitive segment of a sponsored project.

 See below for example award scenarios of On-Campus Research, and F&A rate determinations based on date of initial award:

  1. New Award for On-campus Research, awarded between July 1, 2021 and June 30, 2022:  F&A rate would be 50% for the life of the award. 
  2. New Award for On-campus Research, awarded between July 1, 2022 and June 30, 2023:  F&A rate would be 49% for the life of the award.
  3. New Award for On-campus Research, awarded between July 1, 2023 and June 30, 2024:  F&A rate would be 49% for the life of the award.
  4. New award for On-campus Research, awarded between July 1, 2024 and June 30, 2025:  F&A rate would be 49.5% for the life of the award.
