Cost Principles & Charging Costs

All charges to sponsored projects must be reasonable, necessary for the performance of the project, and allocated appropriately to any project that benefits from the charge.

Charging of expenditures to the correct account code is one of the best ways to help in ensuring compliance with award conditions. UF’s account codes are available with descriptions at:

Some account codes are not allowable under 2 CFR 200, for example food or janitorial services.  As such, the University has blocked these accounts from being charged without having a UF CAS Exemption in place. CAS stands for Cost Accounting Standards.

Contracts and Grants Accounting Services

UF’s Contracts and Grants Accounting Services (C&G) has several teams that provide sponsored research accounting support utilizing the myUFL Grant Accounting System.

Questions or inquiries concerning sponsored research accounting (project set-up, billing of sponsors, accounts receivable, financial reporting, cost sharing, and closeouts) should be addressed to your C&G Team.
