Indirect Cost Return (ICR)

Campus A-21/CAS Relief  and CIRM Guidelines

The allocations for Support for Research Administration and CIRM are made in support of departmental costs associated with the administration of sponsored research. The calculation of each is based on the academic department administrative component as a share of the ICR returned to the campus. Allocations must be expended directly in fund 5000. Should these funds be used for salary expenses, all associated benefit costs must be funded from these same allocations. As allowed by University policy, if these funds are used for a small capital project, they can be expensed in the current chart-string. If the funds are to be used either to support a larger project that is being expensed in a plant account or to cover negative STIP allocations, the transfer will have to be requested and managed through the Control Point/Dean’s Office and the Campus Budget Office.
