reviewing and negotiating complex contracts and agreements involving federal, industrial and foreign companies, confidentiality agreements, data use agreements and other agreements related to research, training and other sponsored programs, including any modifications or modifications to these agreements; Ub calculates the maximum authorized research and development rate negotiated by the Federal Union for all sponsored projects independently of the source of funding, unless a sponsoring agency`s written policy does not fully cover research and development costs. The UB will comply with written guidelines issued by foundation/non-profit sponsors and state sponsors that limit the payment of research and development, but industrial sponsors are expected to pay full research and development rates for the financing of sponsored projects. Unlike foundations or non-sponsored organizations, UB does not accept any letters or other documents from industry sponsors that indicate a policy of R and Down below. Instead, the IP must apply for a formal waiver (see below for the waiver process). When the authorization is granted, the waived rate is applied to a direct cost base (TDC). As always, proposals should use the sponsor`s policy published and applied consistently. If the sponsor does not have a written policy and the grant is philanthropic, the university`s practice is to request a 13% research and development rate to cover the administrative costs associated with the project. This sentence is in recognition of the increased social benefit and philanthropic purpose of the investment and with the university`s intention to cover some of the indirect costs associated with the grant. This sentence must be applied, whether the work takes place on or off campus. The evaluation/testing agreement to which the research rate applies is as follows: Off-campus definition:For all activities carried out in institutions that are not in the agency`s possession and to which the rent is allocated directly to the project or projects, grants or contracts are not subject to a research and development cost rate. Therefore, the rate is determined by how most of the activity is carried out as part of the project. (i.e.

off-campus, in an REC or for other sponsored activities), and this phrase applies to the entire project. Some projects require activities that are performed on multiple sites. While these sites represent both on- and off-campus spaces (based on the criteria outlined below) and the proportion of off-campus activities reaches the threshold described below, the research and development rate used includes campus components and off-campus campuses. The research and development rates used in our proposal process are set by a negotiated agreement with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. With the exception of the research training described above, this term encompasses all teaching and training activities, whether they are offered to credits for a diploma or certificate or on a non-credit basis, and whether they are offered by regular academic departments or separate departments, such as. B a summer teaching department or an extension department. For some sponsors, the university accepts prizes on or above the prices listed below, without additional documentation.

If a sponsor does not have a written policy for the payment of RA, you must ask for the full price in the proposal, unless you have a waiver.
