Federal F&A Cost Study Information Sessions

re: Upcoming Space Inventory/Survey

October 9, 2013


Overview of the University’s current efforts to renegotiate new F&A (Facilities & Administrative) rates with the federal government – especially the role that the upcoming SPACE SURVEY plays in maximizing the F&A rate to be charged in future years.


Anyone who is interested in learning about the process and how they can help. Faculty, Principal Investigators, Researchers, and Administrators involved in organized (sponsored) research on campus would all benefit from attending.


Increasing the current F&A on campus research rate (49%) will take some effort, and much of our success in increasing the rate will be dependent on identifying and maximizing the space on campus identified as “research space.” This session will help attendees understand how they can help.
