Since our most recent announcement that dealt with how recovered F&A cost will be distributed, we received questions from one of the PIs who wanted to know of various aspects of F&A principles including:
(a) What really is F&A cost? What does it include?
(b) How does this get negotiated with the Federal Government?
(c) How does our rate compares with those of other universities; and
(d) How does our disbursement of recovered F&A cost compares with those of other institutions?
Realizing that answers to these questions may be of interest to also others we have re-crafted one of our existing web-links to provide answers to some of these questions.
