It is ok to use a different F&A rate, when a sponsor or FOA specifies a different indirect cost rate than the university accepted rate, or a sponsor doesn’t allow f&a.  Please be sure to upload documentation into the attachments section of Kuali Coeus. Acceptable formats include RFAs/FOAs, screenshots from agency websites, an email from the sponsor agency specifying the correct rate. Proposals without documentation cannot be approved due to auditing requirements.  Please see our website for additional info:
