How to apply and calculate F&A and Fringe

In Review

Calculating Modified Total Direct Costs

MTDC = Total Direct Costs minus the following:

  • Equipment
  • Capital expenditures (includes alterations and renovations)
  • Patient Care
  • Student Tuition remission
  • Rental costs of off-site facilities
  • The portion of individual subawards over $25,000
  • Scholarships and Fellowships

F&A rates for non-federal sponsors vary widely. F&A costs for private awards should be calculated on Total Direct Costs (TDC) unless the sponsor has written policies exempting certain line items from F&A.
