Facilities and Administrative Rates


Facilities and Administrative (F&A) rates are used to recover costs spent on sponsored activities that cannot be directly attributed to a particular project. These are often called indirect costs. The Cost Studies group calculates, proposes, and negotiates F&A rates with the federal government (Department of Health and Human Services). This process is generally done on a four-year cycle at Emory.
