With the myriad funding sources that programs juggle, following the federal rules for cost allocation and dealing with indirect cost rates carefully and appropriately has never been more important. The Supercircular changes how non-federal entities can obtain indirect cost rates for federal awards, including requiring recognition in most cases by other federal agencies and states and other pass-through entities of a previously negotiated indirect cost rate with another federal agency and allowing a one-time extension of a federally-approved negotiated indirect cost rate. Staying up with the new Supercircular indirect cost rates and cost allocation requirements can be confusing. Please join Scott Sheffler, partner, Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell LLP, for a clear and concise explanation of the new Supercircular indirect cost rates and cost allocation requirements. Mr. Sheffler will offer guidance for identifying where changes will be required that affect your organization legally and operationally.


Just a sampling of what this webinar will cover:

  • Changes to cost allocation and indirect cost rate requirements which will have an impact on your organization
  • Appropriate usage of de minimis rates
  • How your organization allocates costs
  • Necessary alterations to policies and procedures under the Supercircular
  • Required changes to operational systems
