UC Campuses play an active role in the negotiation process, preparing indirect cost proposals, and providing data to the Costing Policy and Analysis unit of the UC Office of the President. Costing Policy and Analysis is jointly responsible, along with UC campuses, for determining what information is needed to compute indirect costs. Indirect costs are computed in accordance with the applicable provisions of OMB Circular No. A-21, Sections E, F and G. (See 8-F01.) (UCOP Contract & Grant Manual effective 1/1/1996)
