Indirect Costs, Overhead, or F&A Costs: are facilities/administrative expenses (e.g., heat, lights) and are calculated at 49.9% of total wages, salaries, and benefits charged to the grant. This is SLU's federally negotiated rate approved by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. For privately funded projects, the funding agency will determine whether indirect costs are allowed, and if so, at which rate.
Salaries for grant project directors are computed based on the amount of time to be devoted to the project. For summer work on federall sponsored projects, the principal investigator, or PI, salary is usually one to two ninths of annual salary, for one or two months of summer work.
Fringe benefits are calculated based on the wages and salaries of personnel hired under the grant. The rate used will depend on the type of salary and position and must be verified with the SLU Finance/Budget Office.
FICA, or Social Security Tax, is calculated at 7.65% on salaries and wages.
Student summer stipends are $3,500 for eight to ten weeks for one summer. FICA (Social Security Tax) charges depend on the nature of the project--for student-generated projects (fellowships), FICA is not charged. However, if a student is hired as a summer research assistant on a faculty-driven grant, the student is considered to be a summer employee of SLU, and FICA is charged.
Student academic year wages are paid according to an hourly pay scale based on position skill level and experience and outlined in the Student handbook. During the academic year, students are compensated through the SLU work-study program, and FICA is not charged.
The mileage reimbursement rate is $0.50 per mile, effective 1/1/2010.
