Join us for the next DFA Conversations event on Thursday, May 9, from 1:00-2:30 p.m., in Lecture Hall 2, Room S1-165, Schurman Hall, when we describe the accounting, space management, inventory, and related activities that will be necessary to ensure that the university maximizes the funding it receives for indirect costs.
Cornell University is one of the top recipients of external funding for research and other activities. In fiscal year 2018, Cornell received approximately $700M for activities based in Ithaca and at Weill Cornell Medicine. These external agreements provide funds towards both the direct (programmatic) activities as well as the indirect or F&A (infrastructure) costs. To receive the funds for indirect costs, Cornell must manage its financial activities in a certain way and periodically submit a rate proposal to the federal government. Our next rate proposal will be based on activity during fiscal year 2020.
We look forward to seeing you for this program.
