Organized Research means all research and development activities that are sponsored by federal and non-federal agencies and organizations. Research seeks fuller knowledge of a subject and involves investigation aimed at the discovery of new facts or revision of accepted theories. Research projects may include laboratory work, testing and evaluation, questionnaires, pre- and post-tests, and statistical analysis.  This category also includes activities involving the training of individuals in research techniques where such activities utilize the same facilities as other research and development activities and where such activities are not included in the instruction function. 

Sponsored Instruction means the teaching and training activities of an institution established by grant, contract, or cooperative agreement. These activities may be offered for credits toward a degree or certificate or on a non-credit basis, and may be offered through regular academic departments or through separate divisions, such as summer school or extension. (Research training is not included; it is included under Research above.)

Instruction is used when the primary purpose of the project involves training, curriculum development, instruction, demonstration, or efforts to improve pedagogical methods. Instructional projects may include some elements of research, particularly if new techniques of instruction or curriculum content are being developed.

Other Sponsored Activities are programs and projects sponsored by federal and non-federal agencies which involve the performance of work other than instruction and organized research. Examples include health service projects, community service programs, non-credit community education, and conferences.

This rate is for projects sponsored by an approved California state agency through the California State Indirect Cost Rate Compact.  If a state agency is not an "approved" agency, our 47% negotiated rate applies.  If a state agency requires a lower rate, an exception must be approved by the Chancellor’s Office.  Please note that city and county agencies are not part of the compact and thus do not qualify for the 35% rate.

Off-campus rates apply to all activities performed in facilities not owned by the institution and to which rent is directly allocated to the project(s).  Actual costs will be apportioned between on-campus and off-campus components.  Each portion will bear the appropriate rate.

If a sponsoring agency has a published rate that is lower than our federally negotiated rate, we must accept that rate.  The rate must be published on the funding announcement.
