Fringe Benefit Rates

Fringe benefits must be budgeted in grants for all SIUSOM personnel who have salary being charged to the grant. Standard fringe benefits are not budgeted for graduate assistants or student workers (see below).

SIUSOM's Facilities & Administrative (F&A, or indirect) cost rates, set by the federal government, have established all fringe benefit rates - medical (including health, dental, and life insurance) and retirement/Medicare - as a single percentage of salary.

Primary Care Fee

Principal Investigators/Project Directors also need to budget for 50% of their GA’s Primary Care Fee (PCF) for each semester the GA will be employed during the life of the grant.  The PCF cannot be prorated for a GA working a partial period of a semester. From consulting Student Health Services, OSPA’s best estimate of the relevant 50% budget figures for proposals are reflected in the tables below.
