We have compiled relevant information to facilitate the development of a compliant proposal, including F& A rates, Fringe Benefit Rates, and institutional information.


The Federal Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-21 defines Facilities and Administrative Costs as "those incurred for common or joint objectives and therefore not identified readily and specifically with a particular sponsored project or instructional activity." Include F & A in your proposals.

Fringe benefits should be charged on proposals. Use the appropriate Fringe Benefit rates when developing your proposal.

Often agencies require specific information about the Institution for proposal applications. This section includes UM's Federal Tax ID number, FWA number, and other information.

Every Principal Investigator (PI) at the University of Miami is required to complete, route and obtain institutional approval before submitting a proposal to an agency. Please use the PCRF-L or PCRF-S to obtain this approval. Please use the Decision Matrix to determine which form to use or visit the forms page for additional details.
