Dear Colleagues,

After further review of the Work Study issue, below is a clarification of my email sent on June 27.

In general, the nonfederal share (25%) of Federal Work-Study (FWS) wages may not be charged to a federal funding source.  However, the match may be paid out of federal funds provided the agency of the matching federal fund allows for both the payment of student wages and the matching from another federal fund. Please ensure that if the 25% match is allowed, that you retain documentation to support that (confirming by phone is not adequate documentation).  The 15% administrative surcharge may not be charged to federal sources.  If you have questions, please contact Rebecca Tangen at rtangen@uci.edu or 949-824-6828.

Thanks

Good Morning,

 With the start of the UCI Fiscal Year upon us, it is important to remember that the nonfederal share of Federal Work-Study (FWS) wages may not be charged to a federal funding source.  Also, please remember that the 15% administrative surcharge should not be charged to federal sources either.  If you have questions regarding appropriate funding sources for the nonfederal share of FWS wages or the administrative surcharge, please contact Rebecca Tangen at rtangen@uci.edu or 949-824-6828.
