See RPH 3.11, Undergraduate Salaries Charged to Sponsored Projects
The revised policy, dated February 1, 2012, is implemented as follows:
Effective immediately, undergraduate student salaries will carry full indirect costs on all proposals.
All active sponsored awards with undergraduate student salaries charged prior to February 1, 2012 are grandfathered under the prior policy waiving indirect costs on undergraduate salaries in effect at the time the award was accepted.
For all awards received on or after February 1, 2012, including any awards that result from proposals submitted earlier and competing renewals of earlier awards, the full, applicable indirect cost rate will be charged to undergraduate salaries.
The Office of the Vice Provost and Dean of Research will verify the charges and will upon request transfer funds into the unrestricted account of the Principal Investigator in the amount of the indirect costs recovered for undergraduate student salaries. This transfer of funds will be processed annually, based on actual expenditures for undergraduate student salaries as of June 30th of each year and the applicable indirect cost rate.
ET 51460 Research Assistant Undergraduate will be subject to F&A starting February 1, 2012.
