If the sponsor cannot provide a written policy governing IDC of their F&A policy, the University’s appropriate federally negotiated rate will be applied. If the PI has a compelling reason for asking that the campus’ federally negotiated rate be waived, the PI will need to request an indirect cost waiver.  Please refer to our website: http://www.umaryland.edu/spa/budgets-and-expenses/fa-cost-rates/
