Please contact the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) for assistance with your budget. All budget information must be submitted to the ORSP for review and institutional approvals prior to proposal submission or negotiations with a potential funder.
All grant and contract budgets must be prepared in accordance with UT Fiscal Policies as well as funding agency guidelines. All costs requested must be allocable to the operation of the grant program and allowable by UT policy, sponsor policy, and Uniform Guidance. All costs must be reasonable and necessary for the performance of the project.
Facilities and administrative costs (F&A) will be included in the budget if permitted by the sponsor. UT Martin’s predetermined federally negotiated F&A rates are calculated on salaries and wages only and are currently set as follows:
- 53% for on-campus research projects and programs
- 20% for off-campus research projects and programs
- The off-campus rate will apply to the entire project if more than 50% of the project is performed off-campus
The current F&A Distribution Policy was approved in 2019 and distributes funds in the following percentages:
F&A Distribution Policy
|Educational and General Revenue Fund||25%|
|Office of Research and Sponsored Programs||25%|
|College Research Incentive Distribution||20%|
