Waiver of F&A
GC’s federally negotiated Facilities & Administration (F&A) rate is 29% for on-campus and 13.6% for off-campus. It is to be applied to all proposals regardless of the funder unless the funder states in the announcement or within their written terms and conditions that a reduced or zero rate is required. All other situations of waiving F&A must be approved by the Provost.
The procedure to request a waiver of F&A is as follows:
- Email with the request and a justification is to be submitted for approval to Department Chair
- Then forwarded to the appropriate College Dean for approval
- Finally, the request and all approvals should to be forwarded to the Provost for final decision
If the request receives complete approval, please forward to OGSP to implement in the budget development and include in grant file.
