The Controller’s Office has finalized negotiations with the Office of Naval Research for a three-year F&A rate agreement covering Fiscal Years 2019 – 2021.

The campus community should immediately begin using the new rates in proposal submissions.  Please contact your Pre Award Associate if you need access to the new budget templates.

Since research rates for FY 2020 and FY 2021 are lower than the current rate, proposals submissions incorporating the prior rates for future years will be re-budgeted by the Office of Sponsored Programs if the sponsor awards the proposal. 

In the coming months, the Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation and the Controller’s Office will be communicating how the university will apply the new rates to awards established before the rate agreement was negotiated.   

University Departments should contact their Pre Award Associate for proposal inquiries and their Post Award Associate for established projects.
