AMERICAN BERKSHIRE ASSOCIATION POLICY ON INDIRECT COSTS
ADOPTED 1/1/15
It is the American Berkshire Association’s (ABA) policy not to pay indirect costs (aka, Facilities & Administrative costs) on any proposal requesting an award of any amount. The ABA does not pay government-approved overhead rates on grant projects. The following expenses are examples of charges the ABA considers institutional infrastructure costs and will not allow as direct costs in a project or research budget: office rent, grants and contracts office expenses, institutional and departmental administrative expenses, institutional and departmental information technology expenses, and accounting and legal services. In grant project proposals, necessary administrative costs related to the request can be built into the direct costs of the proposal, but the ABA will generally not accept institutional infrastructure costs to be included within the budget. The ABA reviews each budget individually for the appropriateness of the direct costs being requested.
