In the Proposal Preparation and Submission Instructions, it is stated that no duplication of overhead for subcontracts is allowed. When we, as a university, include subcontracts in funding proposals, the total funds requested by the subcontractor include overhead fees applied per their institutional policies.

Our university then applies our overhead rate on the first $25,000 of each new subcontract. As a university, we do not consider that to be duplication of overhead, but we wanted to ask for further clarification as to what the GRI considers duplication of overhead before proceeding with our budget planning.

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.
