Recoverable / Non-recoverable:
Default is Recoverable.
If a Departmental Activity (DA) is be being created to support activity that is categorized as unrecoverable per the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-21, the DA should be marked “unrecoverable”. This designation is used in the calculation of the Facilities and Administrative (F&A) Rates for sponsored agreements. If a DA is unrecoverable, the costs associated with it are not included in the rate calculations.
To determine if a DA should be recoverable/unrecoverable, refer to the explanations of unrecoverable expenses per OMB Circular A-21. Please call Cost/Compliance Accounting at 293-4002 Ext. 2439 with any questions regarding this determination.
