Training on Allowable and Unallowable Costs

Primary tabs

This training will focus on allowable and unallowable charges. OMB Circular A-21 Cost Principles for Educational Institutions identifies direct and indirect costs that may be charged to federal research grants and contracts. The cost principles also identify those charges that cannot be charged to grants and are considered unallowable expenses. OMB Circular A-21 offers four tests to determine the allowability of costs applied to federally sponsored agreements. This training will go into and explore these four cost areas and is required for Departmental Certification in Sponsored Programs.
