Webinar Description: 

Managing indirect costs was never simple, and now the uniform guidance has changed the rules once again. Nonfederal entities that never had an indirect cost rate before can request a "de minimis" or 10 percent flat rate for indirect costs. For nonfederal entities with current indirect cost rates, the way you calculate indirect costs makes all the difference in your ability to recover overhead and administrative costs. But there's more. There is an extension period under certain circumstances, there are cost allocation plans, and there are new requirements for federal agencies and pass-through entities, too. Getting indirect costs right means navigating complex provisions and avoiding potential audit findings. Here's what you need in order to understand the options and the new requirements. 
 
Learning Objectives:
  • Gain awareness of direct and indirect costs.
  • Recognize changes to indirect costs.
  • Distinguish between different indirect cost rates.
  • Review considerations to obtain a rate.
  • Identify key requirements for cost allocation plans.
