Unh applies its state-negotiated cost rates for institutions and administration (also known as indirect or overhead costs) to all externally sponsored programs. These negotiated rates should be accepted by all federal allocation agencies. However, some federal authorities may use a rate different from the negotiated rate if required to do so by federal laws or regulations or if they have been approved by a federal allocation agency on the basis of a documented statement of reasons. UNH also recognizes that many nonprofit foundations have guidelines that limit or exclude the use of their funds for overhead. 7.3.2 A federal allocation authority may use a rate different from the negotiated rate, if required to do so by federal law or regulation or if it has been approved by an agency on the basis of documented justification. . . .
