5-200 Contribution of Direct and Indirect Costs

5-210 Contribution of Direct Costs

Direct costs may be contributed to a sponsored project, subject to the cost sharing/matching conditions and criteria discussed in Sections 5-300 through 5-420. If direct project costs are contributed to a sponsored project, indirect costs associated with the cost sharing are calculated as part of the cost sharing at the appropriate negotiated or approved indirect cost rate.

5-220 Contribution of Indirect Costs

Indirect costs may be contributed to a sponsored project when associated with direct cost contributions. (See 5-210.) Waivers of indirect costs requested only for the purpose of creating cost sharing will not be approved. However, indirect cost amounts that have been waived in accordance with procedures, and on the basis of factors such as award class, sponsor policy or campus vital interest, may be used to satisfy sponsor cost sharing requirements.
