Facilities and Administrative Investment Program

This program provides a research investment to qualified faculty, research faculty, and research associates (serving as lead PI) for receiving externally-funded projects of at least $10,000 in direct cost with a minimum F&A percentage.

The investment amount is indexed against the project’s actual, recovered F&A and will be calculated as 2.5% of the recovered amount. Please note the following eligibility and program requirements:

  1. Projects must be housed at Mandel School (assigned to an Mandel School Department ID). Subaccounts assigned to Mandel School by another school are eligible.
  2. Projects for which the Dean has approved a reduced F&A rate are not eligible.
  3. Projects for which the School is providing cost-share are not eligible.
  4. The direct cost budget must equal or exceed $10,000 to be eligible.
  5. The investment amount is indexed against the actual, recovered F&A and will be calculated as 2.5% of the recovered amount.
  6. The investment amount is allocated to the lead Mandel School PI.
  7. The investment amount will be available at the end of the fiscal year during which the F&A was recovered. F&A will not be applied to this amount and it will accrue from year to year. It will be placed in an internal account.
  8. Projects must recover at least 30% F&A.
