September 1, 2020 — Starting today, September 1, all researchers should use the new 52 percent indirect rate for on-campus research proposals. An application for a waiver of the UCF federal award under our collective agreement may be sought for consideration if a proposed project falls within the eligible categories. A reduced rate of 10% is assessed if the application is approved and applies to project administrative costs. Research and development costs are real costs borne by the university during research and the integration of research and development costs into the budget allows the university to reimburse these costs. There are separate rates for organized research, teaching and other sponsored activities on and off campus. The ancillary benefits included in the combined ancillary benefit rate are listed below: `Current tuition fees and tuition fees are available here. The amount of education costs taken into account must be estimated on the basis of the same percentages of participation as for the calculation of the student`s salary. Current student rates and student fees are available. In this case, rates of pay must be calculated on the basis of actual increases, which cannot be granted solely because a sponsored project is being developed. The summer salary must not exceed one third of the annual academic base for three months of work (the National Science Foundation limits summer aid to 2 months). The increase in the cost of living should be calculated for each year after the first fiscal year with a rate of no more than 3%. Ancillary benefits are budgeted and estimated as a percentage of actual wage costs.
Marginal rates are analyzed and updated each year before the start of the budget cycle. Rates are increased or reduced to withstand changes in the actual costs of the university. The Research Office is the only office authorized to negotiate adaptations of the R and D rates for each proposal. Starting in fiscal 2018, UCF has implemented a new cost allocation procedure for the collection of incidental costs for employees across the study. This cost allocation process calculates ancillary benefits for departments and projects based on a series of fixed rates applied to gross salary expenditures of defined employee groups. This new method is called the composite fringe interest rate (CFBR) or “pooled fringes” method of allocating costs. Advice fees are based on an hourly or daily rate. All employees have ancillary benefits related to their work appointments.
The combined marginal performance rate is an average of all eligible benefit costs applicable to the various groups of university employees listed below: Office of Research – PI/Co-PI My ResearchBase Addition Form The IRB Committee has set up to protect the rights and well-being of research participants.
