Expenses that are specifically associated with a particular sponsored project or activity and/or can be directly assigned to that project or activity with a high degree of accuracy.
Other Possible Project Expenses
There may be other direct project expenses that do not fit into the categories listed above, but are relevant and allowable for a specific project. Examples include publication costs, computer services, human subject participation fees, patient care, participant support, repair and maintenance of proposed equipment purchases, rent and utility expenses, animal services, communication costs, tuition, and some types of telephone service.
The College must follow all federal, sponsor, and institutional guidelines to determine if a cost is an allowable expense. Any project expenses that do not fit into the standard direct cost categories, must first be considered an allowable expense, and then should be listed and carefully justified within the project budget. The budget justification should clearly state that the cost is essential and necessary for the project. Click here for more information on developing budget justifications.
