The Uniform Guidance continues the options for submitting proposals for federal indirect cost rates that were previously included in OMB Circular A-122. Learn how indirect cost rates are computed using the Simplified Allocation Method, Multiple Allocation Base Method, and Direct Allocation Methods and understand the pros and cons of utilizing the permissible choices for bases (total direct cost, salaries and wages, and total personnel costs). We discuss how to apply for an indirect cost rate and explore the potential benefits of changing methods along with opportunities to raise or lower your rate at your next negotiation.
