Everything you need to know about indirect rates for nonprofits is in this 4 hour course. We go through every important aspect about indirect rates and allocations under the Uniform Guidance (UG). Specifically, we discuss the changes and new options that the UG has on indirects. Included is a practical exercise to build an indirect rate. We finish the session with the new 55 cost principles as to what is allowable or unallowable.


The indirect rate toolkit provides everything you will need in understanding and preparing nonprofit rates. You will learn about the new 10% de minimus indirect rate, direct cost allocations, definitions of direct and indirect cost, as well as extending negotiated indirect rates. We cover all of the significant cost principles, new principles, changes within the cost principles, categorizing them by the most important and commonly used in “every day” grant accounting. Together we prepare an indirect cost rate proposal for a real nonprofit. We will discuss transition issues between direct charging occupancy and the impact if the organization decides to establish a negotiated indirect rate.
