Preparing for a Government Shutdown

Updated September 29, 2023

The federal government’s fiscal year ends on September 30 and Congress has not passed any of the 12 appropriations bills required to fund the government for the fiscal year beginning on October 1. If Congress fails to pass the appropriations bills, or a continuing resolution to fund government operations until the bills are passed, then the government will shut down.

Since it is becoming increasingly likely the federal government may shut down, either whole or in part, University employees who work on federally sponsored projects need to begin preparations now.

New Indirect (F&A) Cost Rate

New Indirect (F&A) Rates Effective July 1, 2023

Effective July 1, 2023, the University's indirect (F&A) rates are as follows:

  • On-Campus Research - 56% (previously was 55.5%)
  • On-Campus Instruction - 42% (no change)
  • On-Campus Other (Public Service) - 30% (previously was 26%)
  • Off-Campus - 26% (no change)

The indirect (F&A) rate for private industry clinical trials remains 28% of total direct costs.

There are no changes to our rates from Non-Profit Associations and Foundations and we will continue to follow sponsor policy for those rates with 10% de-minims in the absence of a policy. 

What does this mean?

  • Any awards segments that were awarded before July 1, 2023, and are still active will remain with our previous F&A rate structure (e.g. on-campus research would be 55.5%). 
  • Any new awards received will be setup at the new rates as of July 1, 2023, This includes proposals that are in development or submitted and not yet awarded.

The University's F&A Cost Grid has been updated and the 2023 F&A Agreement (NICRA) is available.
