* Certain rates for the Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) differ from campus rates because they include staff leave accruals.

** Rates with exclusions for healthcare and retirement are for Global Health Department employees who are working abroad and do not have access to certain benefits.

*** This category was combined with 01-20 starting in 2012.

These rates are the effective UW benefit rates, the rates stored in the Financial Accounting System (FAS), and the only rates that can be used in preparing a budget.

Facilities and Administrative (F&A) Cost Rates

The F&A rate determines the reimbursement provided to UW for facilities and administrative costs made in support of direct expenditures under grants and contracts awarded by the federal government. The F&A rate was formerly known as the Indirect Cost rate.

Salary, Stipend, and Rent Rates

A salary cap is defined as a maximum amount or rate of compensation for personal services that a sponsor will reimburse the University on a sponsored program.

As of February 2009, the only agency that establishes salary caps is the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), which includes the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). The NIH salary cap is indexed to a specified Executive Pay Level and changes periodically.

Departments are responsible for ensuring compliance with any salary limitations imposed by sponsors.
