Industry F&A Rate

The rate is 67.7% of MTDC (modified total direct costs) regardless of activity type or project location. There are no exceptions to this rate.

MTDC: F&A is applied to all of the direct costs minus the following: equipment with a unit cost greater than or equal to $5,000, tuition/fees, participant support, in/out patient care costs, rental of outside facilities, amounts over the first $25,000 of each subcontract, and alterations/renovations. Alterations/Renovations are defined as having a cost of $15,000 or more per alteration or renovation. Costs of less than $15,000 are considered a miscellaneous expense.


Proposals to industry which involve federal flow-through funds should not use this rate. Instead, click here to determine the correct rate.
