Indirect Cost Recovery on State of California Awards

Nathan Brostrom, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of the University of California, has issued the following guidance on State of California sponsored projects:

On July 1, 2019, the first escalation of IDC from 25% to 30% MTDC is expected to be applied to on-campus agreements from all State of California agencies except for the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA).

Off-campus activities will remain at 25% MTDC.

Starting on July 1, 2019, IDC on funding originating from CDFA increases to 25% MTDC. Special provisions have been made for IDC for funding from Marketing Orders and Commodity Boards.

CSU has agreed to follow UC’s course with regards to these escalations.
