Facilities and Administrative Cost Rates/IDC
James Madison University Sponsored Projects

Facilities and Administrative Cost Rates/IDC Effective as of July 1, 2011

At least every 4 years, JMU is required to renegotiate our In-direct Cost Rate Agreement with the federal government (also called Facilities and Administration or Overhead rate). In November 2010 we received the results of those calculations and negotiations. The chart below explains the rates and base.

The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) began to use this new rate calculation for proposals that were to start on or after July 1, 2011. For continuing or multi-year programs that have been awarded prior to July 1, 2011; the existing rate will be used on that project until the conclusion of that award. Please contact OSP if you have any questions.
