Table of Approved Rates of Indirect Cost Recovery
Indirect costs of research are recovered at a rate of 25% of all direct costs for all non-industry funding (government and non-profits) with the exception of the Tri-councils, and 40% of all direct costs on industry funding.
However, if a different rate on a grant application form or accompanying instructions is verified by ORS or UILO, it will be accepted.
The table of approved rates is simply a record of the most recently verified indirect cost recovery rates for grant applications. Access the table of approved rates with a CWL login.
