Requests to waive or reduce the Indirect Cost Rate on a proposal budget must receive VPR approval. To request a waiver of Indirect Cost, the PI must prepare a justification and submit to the CERD pre award office (Ann Savell or Jason Foley) or to the SRS pre award contact (Laura Hill or Dennis Hoyle). The waiver will be entered and routed through Maestro. The off-campus rate should only be used if instructed by the sponsor or if more than 51% of the work is to be preformed off-campus. Your proposal will not be submitted to the sponsor without prior approval of the IDC waiver, so please start this process early. See link for Acceptable Explanations for IDC waivers.
