You can provide indirect costs to subrecipients or contractors as part of the total cost of your agreement with the receiving organization. If the entity has a current, approved federally negotiated rate, you should use that rate. Otherwise, you should negotiate an appropriate indirect cost rate with a non-profit organization or the equivalent with a for-profit organization.
Can I provide indirect costs for subrecipients or contractors? If so, what rate do I use?
