Charging Administration & Clerical Salaries, Federal Grants & Contracts

Date issued: April 20, 1994

Latest Revision: August, 2013  



Changes to Federal regulations governing charges to grants and contracts, which became effective on July 1, 1994, which curtailed the reimbursement of administrative and clerical salaries as direct charges on grants and contracts. The regulations provide that such salaries are generally indirect costs, and therefore should not generally be charged to individual grants and contracts. Since earlier changes to the Federal regulations already limited the University's recovery of administrative costs through the indirect cost rate, the effect of this change will be a loss of reimbursement, to the extent that salaries of such individuals previously funded by Federal grants and contracts may no longer be funded from those sources.
