New F&A Rate Agreement

The University has completed negotiation of its facilities & administrative costs (F&A) rate agreement, which covers fiscal years (FY) 2013 through 2017. A table summarizing the F&A rates can be found at: http://www.ors.hawaii.edu/index.php/rates/102-quick-links/rates/97-indirect-cost-rates.

Principal investigators can begin using the new negotiated rates in proposals that will result in new awards and for competing continuations. On June 1, 2013, use of the new rates is mandatory.

New awards, including competing continuations, will be handled in the following manner:

1.       Awards received before July 1, 2013 that use the old negotiated rates will be accepted at the old rates.

2.       Awards received July 1, 2013 and after should be made using the new negotiated rates by the federal sponsor.  Per UH APM A8.927, an F&A reduction or waiver must be approved in writing by the appropriate chancellor or chancellor’s designee.

3.       Please note that, per UH APM A8.927, proposals and awards for non-competing continuations should use the same rates as the original award.
