Indirect Costs Budget Justification

BUDGET JUSTIFICATION, OPTION 1:

UC San Diego has completed negotiations with the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) resulting in multi-year increases to the on-campus research MTDC indirect cost rate.  The final approval date is pending, but we have been given permission by DHHS to start using our new rates.  Our new rates are effective July 1 of each fiscal year and are as follows:  FY 2018 is 56.00%; FY 2019 is 57.00%; FY 2020 is 57.50%; FY 2021 is 57.50%; and FY 2022, until amended, is 58.00%.

Contact Janet Turner at DHHS Cost Allocation Services, Western Field Office, 415-437-7859 or CAS-SF@psc.hhs.gov, with questions about UC San Diego's F&A rate.

BUDGET JUSTIFICATION, OPTION 2:

UC San Diego's indirect costs are calculated based on Modified Total Direct Costs (MTDC) as defined in 2 CFR Part 200.68 using Facilities and Administration (F&A) rates approved by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). MTDC is comprised of total direct costs less capital equipment, alterations and renovations, patient care costs, off-campus rent, tuition and fee remission, scholarships and fellowships, participant support costs, costs associated with cloud/shared computing services, and that portion of subcontract costs in excess of $25,000. Additionally, the total amount of subawards to other UC campuses are excluded. Proration is based on the number of days at the applicable rate.

This project will be located on-campus. UC San Diego's F&A rate agreement is pending final approval by DHHS, but we have been given permission by DHHS to start using our new rates. These new escalating rates are as follows:

July 1, 2017, to June 30, 2018: 56.0%
July 1, 2018, to June 30, 2019: 57.0%
July 1, 2019, to June 30, 2020: 57.5%
July 1, 2020, to June 30, 2021: 57.5%
July 1, 2021, until amended: 58.0%

Contact Janet Turner at DHHS Cost Allocation Services, Western Field Office, 415-437-7859 or CAS-SF@psc.hhs.gov, with questions about UC San Diego's F&A rate.

NGN Costs

BUDGET LINE ITEM: NGN Charge (Next Generation Network)                                            $$$$

BUDGET JUSTIFICATION:
UC San Diego Information and Technology Services (ITS) charges a flat per month fee for services to provide state-of-the-art technology infrastructure and services to the campus community. These charges are directly attributable and proportionally applied for the individual(s) included in the proposed budget on the project. These costs are not included in the campus' Facilities & Administration (F&A) rate as an indirect cost. UC San Diego auditors have determined that it is both equitable and consistent with the OMB Circular 2 CFR 200 provisions on cost allocability that the costs be assigned to FTE on grant and contract funds. Accordingly, an allocable portion of these NGN costs are included in this budget as direct project costs.

HS-TSC (Health Sciences Technology Services Charge)

BUDGET LINE ITEM:  HS-TSC (Health Sciences Technology Services Charge)                $$$$

BUDGET JUSTIFICATION:

UC San Diego Health Information Services costs have been included to reflect costs associated with the increased level of security required for all personnel within UC San Diego Health, which includes UC San Diego School of Medicine, Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, and the hospitals and clinics. These charges are directly attributable and proportionally applied for the individual(s) included in the proposed budget on the project.  

TO BE USED IN THE DETAILED BUDGET JUSTIFICATION:

UC San Diego Health Information Services (IS) provides mandatory Information Technology Services to all of Health Sciences faculty and investigators, to include costs associated with the increased level of security required for all personnel within UC San Diego Health, which includes UC San Diego School of Medicine, Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences and the hospitals and clinics. To mitigate the specific risk profile of this highly connected environment, UC San Diego Health Information Services ensures that all PIs who IS provides services to, whether they directly access patient information or not, operate in a highly secure desktop, application and server environment with dedicated and highly trained support. Charges are based on percent of FTE working on a grant and are charged on a monthly basis.

These costs are not included in the campus' Facilities & Administration (F&A) rate as an indirect cost. UC San Diego auditors have determined that it is both equitable and consistent with the OMB Circular 2 CFR 200 provisions on cost allocability that the costs be assigned to FTE on grant and contract funds. Accordingly, an allocable portion of these Technology Services costs are included in this proposal as direct project costs.
