Facilities and Administrative Cost Rate (Indirect Cost Rate)

Middlebury’s indirect cost rate for federal grants is negotiated annually with the Department of Health and Human Services. [Our current rates are listed below.] It is Middlebury’s policy when working with sponsors other than the U.S. government to follow the sponsor’s guidance and charge indirect up to their allowable rates.

  • The Middlebury federal indirect cost rate is 61% of salaries and wages.
  • The Middlebury Institute of International Studies (MIIS) federal rate is 51% of salaries and wages.

Fringe Benefits Rates

Fringe benefits on Federal and Private awards are charged as a percentage of salaries and wages as per the NICRA in effect at the time of award acceptance. Fringe benefits recovered in this way represent real and actual expenses incurred by the College in employing faculty, staff, and students. As such, the fringe benefit budget may not be reduced below the approved NICRA rate in effect at the time of award acceptance, unless the sponsor has a fringe benefit rate limitation (see below).

  • Middlebury College’s fringe rate is 39.5% of salaries and wages for faculty & staff.
  • Middlebury College’s fringe rate is 10% for undergraduate students.
  • Middlebury Institute of International Studies’ [MIIS] rate is 36.2% of salaries and wages.

These rates are negotiated with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It is a “blended rate” and does not necessarily reflect the actual rate for a given position.

Middlebury recognizes that some sponsors and programs have fringe benefit recovery limits that are less than Middlebury’s approved NICRA rates. These lower rates will be accepted if:

  • The sponsor has a published fringe benefit rate limit in their proposal guidelines, on their website, or has confirmed the maximum benefit rate in writing; and
  • The fringe benefit rate limit is equitably applied by that sponsor to all awardees; and
  • The difference between the fringe benefit rate limit and the current NICRA fringe rate in effect at the time of award acceptance is made up from another source of internal or external funding.
