Fringe Benefits Rates

Treatment of Fringe Benefits

 

Below are the fringe benefit rate projections to be used for budgeting purposes on sponsored project proposals. These rates are effective as of February 1, 2020 for the CU Denver | Anschutz Medical campuses. Please use these rates for budgeting purposes on proposals with deadline dates falling on or after February 1, 2020. Remember, our campuses still charge benefits based on actual costs and not the budgeted rates. The fringe benefits listed below are treated as direct costs.

Based on feedback from the Colleges and Schools, we have revised our personnel categories as shown below to provide more precision on projecting actual benefit cost.

**These rates include all fringe including non-payroll fringe (termination pay, worker's comp, unemployment, & retiree health**
