Fringe Benefits Rates

Treatment of Fringe Benefits

 

The fringe benefit rates to be used for budgeting purposes on sponsored project proposals have been updated. The new rates should be used for budgeting purposes on proposals with deadline dates falling on or after July 1, 2021.  These rates apply to proposals developed for both CU Denver and the Anschutz Medical Campus. 

Remember two important things:

  1. Both campuses still charge benefits based on actual costs and not the budgeted rates.
  2. Fringe benefits are treated as direct costs.

Please use the personnel categories that are the most accurate for your proposed budget to create a more precise proposed budget.  The rates include all fringe including non-payroll fringe termination pay, worker's comp, unemployment, and retiree health.
