Our university has a federally negotiated rate of 43% modified total direct costs. In this indirect calculation, we can charge our full indirect rate on the first $25,000 of each subaward.

In the RFP-I Preparation and Submission Instructions, it is stated that "No duplication of overhead for subcontracts will be accepted. Administrative support should be provided from the overhead, unless specific exceptions are requested and accepted through the review and contract process." Do these statements mean that we will not be eligible to use our federally negotiated rate on the first $25,000 of each subaward?

The GRI expects that the lead institution of a research consortium will pass through funding for sub-awards without applying the lead institution's overhead rate. However, the GRI is prepared to accept the normal NSF practice of paying ON-CAMPUS rate on the first $25,000.
