Notes on NFFRE Indirect Cost Rate

   * For NIH definition of indirect cost (IDC), also known as Facilities and Administrative (F&A) costs, click here.

   † Federally Negotiated Rate:  NFFRE does not have a federally negotiated rate. In the absence of a federally approved negotiated indirect cost rate agreement (NICRA), NFFRE has adopted a rate that has been previously negotiated and accepted by a research university, which is consistent with 2 CFR §200.332.  For more information, contact Teresa.Smith11@va.gov or call 352-548-6448.
