A newly documented policy on Recovery and Distribution of Facilities & Administration (F&A) Costs on Sponsored Awards has been approved.

This policy highlights the nature of the F&A costs, underscoring that they are incurred by all sponsored projects regardless of the source of funding and regardless of whether F&A costs are included in sponsored program budgets.

The policy notes that Tufts University requires the use of applicable Tufts rates for budgeting of the F&A costs on all proposals, describes the University process of distributing the F&A costs, and references the approval process for proposals where the sponsor limits F&A cost recovery.

This policy formalizes the current administration of F&A costs recovery and reimbursement and does not introduce new processes or approaches.
