F&A costs, or indirect costs, are expenditures that are incurred for common or joint objectives and, therefore, cannot be identified readily and specifically with a particular sponsored project or activity. Generally, the following types of expenditures cannot be considered direct costs of a sponsored initiative, and are charged as F&A costs: rent; utility charges; costs for standard office supplies, such as paper and pens; and personnel costs for administrative assistants and other staff such as individuals working in Human Resources or Financial Affairs. As specified in the current indirect cost-rate agreement (June 25, 2013), the maximum F&A rates that the university can charge to a federal project are as follows:
