The correct rate is the maximum amount authorized by the Agency for the type of activity proposed by the lead investigator. Please note the following graph, which shows the different research and development rates based on the type of sponsored activity of the program: For some suggestions, the Agency may request details or a breakdown of ancillary service rates. In these cases, here are the details you need: Indirect costs, since they relate to a sponsored project, or the agreements are eligible cost items directly related to the project, but which cannot be attributed directly to that specific project. Examples of indirect costs may be means of depreciation; Research management Accounting; and detention services. Help IP develop and submit a proposal that is part of the funding guidelines, including: support with an adequate and accurate budget, format support, to ensure that the proposal is complete and that it positively represents the university and the auditor. In theory, all of these costs could be billed directly; However, practical difficulties preclude such an approach. As a result, they are generally divided into clusters and distributed to institutional activities fostered by a cost-cutting process. The final product of this attribution process in a set (s) of R and D that is then applied to subsidies and individual contracts to determine the amount of indirect costs attributable to the premium.

Work with Principal Investigator to negotiate the terms of sponsored agreements. The faculty of the WVU and staff are generally paid 100%. Funding agencies are distinguished by the way efforts should be taken into account in a grant proposal. Some agencies request that the effort be demonstrated in months devoted to a project, while others prefer that the percentage of effort be indicated as a percentage of staff assignment. The salary of a faculty or employee must not exceed 100% of the effort allocated. The ancillary benefit rates currently permitted for all categories of staff are as follows: since they relate to sponsored programs, the simple definition of an eligible cost can be determined by the application of a three-track test. An eligible cost of a given grant is acceptable if (1) it is intended exclusively for the purpose of the work under the sponsored agreement; (2) it benefits from both the sponsored agreement and other work of the Institute, in a relationship that can be reconciled by the use of appropriate methods, or (3) it is necessary for the entire functioning of the Institute and is considered partly favourable to sponsored projects. The sub-recipient will carry out a substantial part of the proposed project.
