Specifically for time and materials agreements, the institution will assess a ten percent (10%) administrative fee to be incorporated with the loaded labor rate.
Recommendations for faculty reassigned time and extra duty pay on contracts and fee for services agreements must specify:
All agreements to work on grant- and contract-funded reassigned time and extra duty pay will incorporate the standards of time and effort reporting necessary to comply with the terms of the grant or contract.
