Simplified Method F&A Cost Rates

2 CFR Part 200 - Appendix III 

We prepare a Report to Management and Reference Manual (with crosswalk) which includes the calculation of an indirect cost rate (ON and OFF Campus) in accordance with the simplified method for small institutions. 2 CFR Part 200 - Appendix III, "Cost Principles for Educational Institutions" sets forth the rules that govern Federal grants and contracts awarded to colleges and universities. The Circular requires the development of a Facilities and Administrative (F&A) cost rate based on either salaries and wages or modified total direct costs. The indirect cost rate should be used on grant applications to increase Federal and State Aid.

Maintenance in Lieu of Rent Model

Our Space Occupancy Cost Analysis Report (SOCA) analyzes the capital and operating costs associated with maintaining and occupying space within various buildings. The model computes the capital and operating cost per net usable square foot of occupancy. This analysis becomes the basis for departments to claim Federal and State cost reimbursements in the form of Maintenance in Lieu of Rent (MLR / MILOR).
