Facilities and Administrative Costs (F&A) are also known as indirect costs. KU is reimbursed for the use of our infrastructure for sponsored projects, a portion of which is returned to the PI and department or unit. The Comptroller’s Office creates a F&A rate proposal, which is negotiated with the Department of Health & Human Services, Cost Allocation Services, Dallas Region. This negotiation applies to all Federally-sponsored projects as well as other sponsors. Projects funded by industry have a special rate based upon KU’s negotiated rate.
