1. UPDATE: Provisional F&A Rate Agreement (Tuesday, June 29, 2021)

June 29, 2021

Dear Colleagues,  

The University of Delaware’s new Negotiated Rate Agreement is now available, which includes FY22-FY25 Facilities & Administrative (F&A) Rates and FY22 Fringe Benefit rates. The new rate agreement with the Department of Health and Human Services is located on the Research Office (RO) website for your reference. You will also find the new rates on the RO website in the UD Proposal Development Guide (see Budgets & Rates).

Effective immediately, all new proposals will use the fixed fringe and predetermined F&A rates, which have been programmed into PeopleSoft. The FY22 fixed fringe rates will be applied to existing awards. Existing awards will continue at the F&A rates at which they were awarded, unless there are competing segments.

Several job aids have been revised for use by the research community regarding the F&A and fringe rates:

  1. Please find an updated FY21-22 Salary Reference Sheet
  2. The Research Office has modified the budget template found on our website under Frequently Asked Questions, Getting Started, “How do I construct a budget?” to include the updated rates.
  3. The Research Office has also updated the budget justification template found on our website under Budgets & Rates, Budget Justification Template.
  4. Please find an updated excel F&A rate chart for FY20 to FY25 found on our website.

If you have any questions, please contact your Contract & Grant Analyst.
