While the majority of CTSA and NCURA respondents (80.7%, 205/254) strongly or somewhat agreed that a standard policy of sharing coverage of R-D costs would facilitate interdisciplinary cooperation, only 35.4% (90/254) said that their institutions followed such a policy (Table 2). Although almost two-thirds (64.6%, 164/254) said that their bodies had no policy or were uncertain about their situation, 59.8% of these units (98/164) confirmed that the institution`s individual units could negotiate single-case-by-case AGREEMENT sharing agreements. The objective of this study was therefore to describe common coverage models of research and development costs for research in universities and university health centres (AHCs) and to measure user experience. We have described and categorized a number of different systems currently in use in the United States, as well as user perception and satisfaction, as well as user perception and satisfaction, as shown in our survey. Rates of R and SIUC`s D are negotiated and fixed with the federal government. SIUC rates are lower than those of most comparable research institutes, which can reach 60% or more. Any abandonment or reduction in SIUC`s indirect cost rates means that SIUC subsidizes a large portion of the project than would otherwise be the case. From November 2009 to January 2010, we conducted numerous searches with Google to find policies to allocate publicly published coverage of research and development costs on ininstitutional sites. We used 48 unique phrases, including: The U.S. Office of Management and Budget establishes procedures for determining the indirect costs of universities based on ratios that link these costs to the direct costs of the institution`s ”normal” primary functions, such as teaching, organized research and other activities.
The resulting rates are then verified by the Federal Cognitive Agency, which is Health and Human Services for Minnesota State Mankato. Final rates are negotiated with the Department of Finance and Administration and a formal collective agreement is signed. The agreed rates apply to all federal agreements with the university, unless other mandatory provisions apply. The indirect costs of corporate, foundation and state grants, agreements, contracts and subcontracts are calculated on campus with a rate of 12% or an off-campus amount (or the amount allowed by the funding agency) of all direct costs. (See ”Rationale” above.) The only exception is the awards given by agencies that expressly prohibit indirect cost coverage and for which this condition of the distinction has been documented on the PSAC. As shown in Table 2, similar percentages of respondents by CTSA and NCURA were in favour of the usefulness of research and development releases (86.5% versus 79.7%); P – 0.34), and the proportion of groups reporting institutional policy was not significantly different (27.0% vs. 36.9%); P – 0.25).
