Recovery of Facilities & Administrative Costs
This fund source is derived from the application of a negotiated indirect cost recovery percentage to grant and contract expenditures. They represent the recovery of the fair share of the Facilities and Administrative costs of the University in support of sponsored programs activities. The "F" parts of F&A include the costs of the buildings and equipment, utilities, the maintenance of buildings, and the cost of the University's libraries. The "A" parts include central administration, school and departmental administration, and the Office of Sponsored Programs.
F&A recoveries are distributed to departments and schools based on a formula approved by the academic vice presidents and administered by Financial Planning & Analysis.
