Fringe Benefit Rates
The Office of Sponsored Programs funds the cost of its fringe benefits program by using four composite fringe benefit rates that is applied to salaries and wages paid on grants and contracts.
The rates are negotiated annually with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and is based on estimates of the average annual cost of the program provided to all employees as a group.
Components of the fringe benefit rate are maintained on the Research Foundation of SUNY website along with projections for out-lying years on multiple year proposals. Please contact any OSP staff member to obtain the most current rates and see http://www.osc.state.ny.us/agencies/guide/MyWebHelp/Content/VII/9.htm
