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 federally negotiated indirect cost rate agreement (NICRA), official mailing addresses, and other common information requests are provided for SFA.

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

Other SFASU Information
Institutional overview (such as student-faculty ratio, number of employees) and SFASU history. INformation compiled by University Marketing Communications.

Indirect Cost Rates (Facilities & Administrative / F&A)
SFA's current indirect cost rates are provided. 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 or prohibits 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. (Development Office), instead of through SFA (ORSP), is provided.
