Standard Proposal Information

While all granting agencies are different, most require much of the same institutional information and similar components in their proposals. Below are links to help you find that information quickly and easily. If you have additional questions, don't hesitate to call or e-mail ORSP.

Important Information
The organizational type, DUNS number, federal employer identification number (EIN), congressional districts, SFA's indirect cost agreement, official mailing addresses, and other common information requests are provided for SFA and for the SFA Foundation.

Fringe Benefit Calculations
Standard fringe benefit rates for faculty, staff, and graduate student salaries, additional compensation, and undergraduate students are provided.

Indirect Cost Calculations
SFA's current indirect cost rates are provided,as well as new rates effective September 1, 2013. The rates are based on modified total direct costs (MTDC). Please contact ORSP staff if you have any questions about how to apply the rates to your budget, and if you are preparing a budget for a sponsor that limits indirect costs.

Tax Exempt Status
Although SFA is a tax-exempt organization, some sponsors require applicants to hold a 501(c)(3) tax status. An explanation of when you should submit your application through the SFA Foundation, Inc., instead of through SFA, is provided.
