LCSC Role & Mission


Budget Information

Budget Narration/Justification

Some grants require a budget narrative (or justification) along with a line-item budget.  The budget narrative provides a clear and concise explanation of the expenses (and in some cases revenues) listed on the line-item budget, and serves to provide in depth information that cannot be conveyed in either the budget or the proposal narrative.  

Indirect Costs

Indirect (F&A) cost recovery rate was negotiated with Department of Health and Human Services for 36% of direct costs effective 7/1/2017 thru 6/30/2021. When calculating indirect costs EXCLUDE:

  • Capital outlay/equipment (over $5K)
  • Tuition          
  • Stipends          
  • Scholarships          
  • Rental cost of off-site facilities
  • Any amount over $25,000 on subcontracts

If you have any questions about what qualifies for indirect cost please contact us.

Fringe Rates

Please refer to the Fringe Rate Summary when determining salary and fringe on your budget. For more information, please contact Sue Hasbrouck, Budget Office Director.

Other Budget Information

Summer salary: Summer salary can only be claimed during the period when an investigator is not on regular appointment with the college (usually mid-May to mid-August).

Compensation in excess: Any claim for extra compensation by LCSC regular salaried personnel must be justified in a memo and approved by the Provost. Faculty extra-compensation paid as overtime pay or a temporary salary increase is an unallowable expense on sponsored projects. The rate of pay must be consistent with the base salary.

Tip: Increase all direct costs by 4%; increase fringe by 1%; for each consecutive year of proposed project. Do not increase indirect cost rates.
