The Clinical Trial rate is 25% Total Direct Costs (TDC). Work must meet the UA definition of a clinical trial in order to use this rate. See the PI Handbook for additional information.

Definition of Off-Campus

The off-campus rate is applicable to those projects that are conducted in facilities not owned or leased by the University.  However, if the project is conducted in leased space and lease costs are directly charged to the project, then the off-campus rate must be used.  A project is considered off-campus if more than 50% of its salaries and wages are incurred at an off-campus facility.  If a project is determined to be off-campus, it shall be considered wholly off-campus. Separate on and off-campus rates will not be used for a single project.

Fringe Benefit Rates:

ERE RATES 7/1/14 - 6/30/15
Appointed & Faculty-Regular 28.6%
Faculty-Clinical 16.1%
Faculty-Ancillary 28.1%
Classified-Regular 47.8%
Classified-Temporary     11.2%
Student Employees 2.1%
Graduate Assistants* 63.3%
Federal Employees 27.2%

*The Graduate Assistant Rate is broken down into two components:  13.3% fringe and 50.0% tuition remission.  Prepare proposal budgets excluding the 50.0% amount from F&A costs.  This applies to MTDC bases only.  Budgets with TDC or other bases will reflect F&A charged on all total direct costs, including tuition remission. 

See Rate Agreement for more detailed information. The rate agreement date changes every year before the beginning of the fiscal year (July 1) when the fringe benefit rates are negotiated.
