On-Campus Vs. Off-Campus F&A Rate
Whether the project is charged an on-campus or off-campus F&A rate is decided by time and effort, not dollars. If more than half of the work will be conducted at the university, the on-campus rate is to be used. Even if a lower mandated agency F&A rate is charged (i.e., training grant at 8% F&A), KUCR still needs to determine whether it is an on-campus or off-campus research project. This issue needs to be addressed at the proposal stage.
