Facilities and Administrative (F&A) Rates Less than the University of Oregon's (UO) Negotiated Rate

If the sponsor has published rates that restrict recovery to less than the UO's negotiated rates, upload a copy of the sponsor's published rates as it appears in their guidelines to your EPCS record and apply the sponsor's rate in your budget. If the agency does not have a published policy on the F&A restriction, UO’s negoiated F&A rate must be applied.

When the sponsor caps the F&A rate, and they do not specify how the rate is to be applied, UO policy is to charge the capped rate to total direct costs (rather than modified total direct costs – MTDC).
