Fringe Benefits and Finance/Administration Rates

As part of Intent to Submit a Proposal (ISP), faculty are required to prepare either preliminary or roughly estimated budgets for grant funded activities as part of their proposal submission. The budget that should be submitted along with the ISP generally includes salaries and wages of personnel, commodities, contractual services, travel, equipment, etc. Some of the funding agencies’ Request for Proposals requires the budgets to include payment of the cost of the employee’s fringe benefits and/or for University’s F&A (indirect) costs. This document presents Chicago State University’s provisional F&A and fringe benefit rates for FY14.
