Rate Approval

The Facilities and Administrative Rate (also known as Indirect Cost Rate) for Winthrop University is reviewed and approved by the Cost Allocation Division of the US Department of Health and Human Services (US DHHS) - the Federal cognizant agency for Winthrop University.

This rate should be used in all grant applications, both federal and non-federal, submitted by the University, unless the program guidelines specifically state a rate less than Winthrop's Facilities and Administrative Rate or prohibit the recovery of administrative overhead costs.

Any variance from the application of this rate must be approved by GSRD.
