Facilities & Administrative Indirect Cost Rates

The college indirect cost policy is to recover fully allowable indirect costs.

Since any waiver of indirect costs amounts to a subsidy to the project, the Project Director is required to notify the grants office and state the rationale for waiver or reduction of indirect costs

The federally negotiated indirect cost rate for York College/RF-CUNY on campus is currently 69% of salaries, wages & fringe benefits, and 21% off campus. These approved rates are for use on grants, contracts and other agreements with the federal government and other entities for the period July 1, 2003 through June 30, 2007. Please check with the grants office for any changes in this agreement or for prior rates.
