3.11 Indirect Costs

Approval of Indirect Cost Rates for Subrecipients

As the direct recipient of Federal funding, you are responsible for approving indirect cost rates for your subrecipients. Such rate must be consistent with the requirements of 2 C.F.R. ?? 200. The Federal awarding agency will not approve indirect cost rates beyond the direct recipient level; however, subrecipients who are also direct recipients of Federal awards may already have a Federally approved indirect cost rate. If your subrecipient has negotiated an indirect cost rate with the Federal government, then that rate applies.
