Division of Facilities and Administrative Costs
North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station and NDSU Extension Service Policy for Division of Facilities & Administrative Costs
It is the policy of the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station (NDAES) and the NDSU Extension Service to divide facilities & administrative (F&A) costs based on the division of modified total direct costs (MTDC). If the division of MTDC changes, the division of F&A costs may also change.
The final rebate of F&A costs on individual grant projects will be done according to the normal practice of NDSU as indicated in Section 813, 6.6.1 of the NDSU Policy Manual. The policy states, "Of the indirect costs drawn, 42.0% will be allocated back to the generating colleges or units; 16% will be allocated back to the Office of the President (for Research); and 42.0% to the Office of the President."
