Update – Composite Fringe Benefit rates effective January 1, 2015

Dear Colleagues:


As we reporting in the Fall QRAM, the Budget Office has provided new composite fringe benefit rates for use in proposals submitted to extramural sponsors January 1, 2015 and thereafter. The new rates have been posted to the following website: http://research.uci.edu/sponsored-projects/rates-fees/fringe-benefits.html


The previous rates are also archived on the website for your reference and use.


As a result of your inquiries and feedback, the Budget Office recommends that we continue to use the UCOP issued composite fringe benefit rates for summer employment for nine month academic personnel and summer employment for graduate and undergraduate students. The webpage has been updated accordingly.


If you should have any questions or require further information, please contact a member of the Sponsored Projects Management Team: http://research.uci.edu/sponsored-projects/about/spa-staff-list.html
