Indirect Rate Preparation and Review
Organizations that receive and administer government funding are often required to obtain an approved indirect (overhead) cost rate in order to be reimbursed for indirect expenses related to government grants, contracts, and other procurement instruments. To complete the approval process the organization must submit a proposal to the appropriate agency and then successfully negotiate the terms of the rate agreement. For both new awardees and experienced government contractors, this process can be challenging and complex and can divert critical resources from ongoing operations.
ML Weekes has the resources and skills to support your organization through all aspects of the rate preparation and negotiation process. Our staff has assisted clients subject to OMB circulars, Federal Acquisition Regulations, Cost Accounting Standards and various state and local government regulations. We routinely provide indirect rate services to leading research hospitals, institutes, colleges and universities, not-for-profits and defense contractors.
