STANDARD OVERHEAD RATE AND GUIDELINE SCHEDULE
(Effective January 1, 2005)
Overhead Rates and Guidelines on Research Contracts
Direct payments (stipends) to Principal Investigators (whether taken as personal income, or not) will be
approved only for contracts. Overhead will be applied against these payments at the same rate as other direct
costs. The following is a schedule of rates and modifications.
1. In small contracts (less than $5,000) it is more appropriate to levy an administrative fee of 10% rather
than the full overhead rate.
2. Budget items exempt from overhead
•
Graduate student stipends only (based on the Tri-Council salary/stipends)
•
Flow-through funds that will be transferred to a third party under a sub-agreement for delivery
of a portion of the research. An administrative fee of 10% will be assessed.
