Part of the Ins and Outs of Indirect Costs Under the Super Circular Webinar Series
Presented on: February 11, 2015
Presented by: Kay Sohl, Kay Sohl Consulting
In this webinar, we provide an overview of the impact of the Uniform Guidance on a CAA’s ability to charge administrative and other indirect costs to its federal awards. We discussed the potential conflicts between federal statutory limitations on administrative costs and new Uniform Guidance provisions and explain ways which your CAA can deal with both. For CAAs without federal indirect cost rates, we explored the pros and cons of using a cost allocation plan to support charging administrative costs as direct costs. We contrasted this approach with utilizing the 10% de minimis rate allowed by the Uniform Guidance. We also looked at the most common problems encountered by CAAs with federal indirect cost rates.
