UF DSP Announces Updated F&A Procedures and Directives

The UF Division of Sponsored Programs (DSP) has announced release of an updated Facilities & Administrative (F&A) or Indirect Costs (IDC) Procedures and Directives. This update provides additional clarifications to other sponsored activities (OSA) and appropriate documentation necessary for not-for-profit organizations with lower than the full federal rate. The clarifications are posted here: http://generalcounsel.ufl.edu/media/generalcounselufledu/documents/F&A-Cost-Directives.pdf and also linked through the DSP F&A rates page https://research.ufl.edu/dsp/proposals/budgeting/fa-rates-idc-2.html.

For anyone who has historically used the OSA rate for any material testing, animal trials, or programs other than public services or extension, DSP encourages you to review the updates before submission of future proposals and to reach out to DSP during the time of proposal development if there is any question as to the appropriate mapping of your program to the university’s rate agreement and F&A Directives.

This updated version includes the new Industry Clinical Trial rate of 30% TDC.

If you have questions on the clarifications, please feel free to reach out to DSP.
