Fringe benefit rates are set each fiscal year by the university’s budget office. Because these rates change from year to year, our grant budget template — which calculates fringe benefits for personnel on proposed projects — must be updated each fiscal year. The budget template for FY2020 is now available. Please note that there is now only one budget template for all proposals, including those submitted to NSF.
Submitted grant budgets must reflect the correct fringe benefits, so no outdated budget templates can be accepted by OARS. Please take a minute to download and save the FY2020 template and delete any outdated ones you may have saved.
