Policy Statement

Georgia Tech's policy is to recover F&A on sponsored projects. As a General Exception, Georgia Tech will accept a limitation on F&A recovery in the following situations:

  1. When a statutory limitation is imposed by the U.S. Congress for certain U.S. Government-funded programs, or
  2. When a regulatory restriction is imposed by a U.S. Government agency and is published in the solicitation for proposals, program guidelines, or RFP, or
  3. A U.S. domestic, non-profit (501.c.3) charitable organization imposes a limit that is published in its program solicitation and uniformly applied to all grantees.

Note that the industrial rate generally applies to projects funded by foreign governments, foreign governmental entities, and industry.

In agreeing to a reduced F&A rate, Georgia Institute of Technology is agreeing to cost share real costs associated with sponsored activities


This policy applies to all Georgia Tech Faculty and Staff.
