Sponsor-Specific Under-recovery Guidance

NIH Training Grants

Anticipated under-recoveries associated with NIH Training Grants are funded by the Institute and do not need to be analyzed at the proposal stage.

Federal Sponsors

Under-recovery of research F&A may arise because of specific federal caps on F&A recovery. However, Uniform Guidance requires federal agencies to obtain approval for such caps. If you see cases where federal sponsors are limiting F&A in their solicitations, notify your RAS contract administrator.
