Indirect cost rate proposal preparation or review services

After gaining an understanding of your organization, we will put together documentation to request an indirect cost rate that is in accordance with regulations. This package normally includes the proposal, the related audited financial statement, and other detail supports such as general ledger, trial balance, and other necessary information.

Our professionals have experience serving grant applicants and recipients, including nonprofits, higher education institutions, and state and local governments. We will work with you and the government to help you solidify a formalized indirect cost rate agreement.
