Fringe Benefit Rates -

The University does not have a federally negotiated fringe benefit rate.  The benefit rate used for budgeting for faculty and staff is usually 23.75%.  This is a university wide average rate.  However, in cases where an employee's actual fringe costs are higher than the 23.75% average rate, it is acceptable to budget at the higher, actual rate.  This is most likely to happen when the employee has a low salary, and elects a higher cost health care plan.  All proposers should consult with the Office of Sponsored Programs on fringe rates early in the budgeting process.  For students, the fringe rate for budgeting is 7.65%.  

Grants are charged the actual costs of the fringe benefits provided.

DO NOT use the terms overhead and fringe interchangeably. They are actually very different.

Overhead is an indirect cost that is a negotiated rate the university is allowed to charge to recoup the costs for things like heating and cooling the buildings, maintenance, etc.

Fringe benefits are a direct cost for the benefits provided to the individual employees.

The following listed rates are for budgeting purposes. Since overhead is not based on an actual cost, it is charged at the budgeted rate, per federal regulations.
