Indirect Cost Rate for State of California Agreements

The University of California campus Chancellors, together with UCOP Chief Finance Officer Nathan Brostrom, agreed to hold the Facilities and Administrative (F&A) or indirect cost rate for State of California funded agreements static at 25% of modified total direct cost (MTDC) for another fiscal year (i.e., through June 30, 2019).  This rate does not apply to funds originating from a federal award subject to the Uniform Guidance.  In accordance with 2 CFR 200.414 and 2 CFR 200.331, when UC performs as a subrecipient to a state pass-through entity under a federal award, the campus will recover its federally negotiated F&A rate.

Note: this change is not yet reflected on UCOP's website
