IDC Rates


Indirect costs (IDC), otherwise known as Facilities & Administration (F&A) costs, allow us to recover certain expenses (e.g., facilities, utilities, libraries, administration, student services, etc.) associated with externally funded training and research activity. The Texas A&M University System’s Indirect Cost Rates are negotiated with the DHHS. Some foundations, associations, and other non-profit entities will not pay the University’s full rates. The following are the current IDC rates, they will be in place until 2018.

48.50% Research – On Campus (This will include most TEES, TAMU, AgriLife Research, and HSC proposals)

28.00% Other Sponsored Activities – On Campus (This will include most AgriLife Extension)

26.00% Off Campus
