New Guide developed: Facilities & Administrative Costs Quick Guide

The Senate Committee on Research recently asked the Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) “to consider additional communication tools that would help broadly disseminate information to the Penn State community with the aim of dispelling misperceptions about F&A, including how the rate is set and how that money is used”.

In response to this request, OVPR has prepared the F&A Costs Quick Guide. This guide includes a breakdown of cost components, answers to frequently asked questions, and links to additional resources. The guide will be updated each year as new rates are approved.
