1 In cases where UF faculty are authoring proposals with the government entity for third party funding, the federal rates apply. The intent of this rate is for money that the government entity receives through Florida Legislature appropriation, county taxation, or other operating funds. If the Florida entity’s solicitation allows for recovery of greater than 10%, the allowable rate should be included in the proposal. For the purposes of F&A rate application, SUS Universities are NOT Florida State Agencies.
2 For clinical studies using animal subjects, the appropriate federal negotiated rates are used, most common being on campus research. See details on definitions of clinical trials and allowability in section 3 of F&A Directives and Procedures.
Use of any F&A rates other than the negotiated rates or the itemized exceptions provided above must be approved by the College Dean or Unit Director and a Director of the Division of Sponsored Programs (DSP).
