Templates and Boilerplates

    • Budget Justification Boilerplates

      • Next Generation Network (NGN): UC San Diego Information and Technology Services (ITS) charges a flat per month fee for services to provide state-of-the-art technology infrastructure and services to the campus community. These charges are directly attributable and proportionally applied for the individual(s) included in the proposed budget on the project. These costs are not included in the campus' Facilities & Administration (F&A) rate as an indirect cost. UC San Diego auditors have determined that it is both equitable and consistent with the OMB Circular 2 CFR 200 provisions on cost allocability that the costs be assigned to FTE on grant and contract funds. Accordingly, an allocable portion of these NGN costs are included in this budget as direct project costs.

      • Health Sciences Technology Services Charge (HS TSC): UC San Diego Health Information Services costs have been included to reflect costs associated with the increased level of security required for all personnel within UC San Diego Health, which includes UC San Diego Herbert Wertheim School of Public Health and Human Longevity Science, School of Medicine, Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, and the hospitals and clinics. These charges are directly attributable and proportionally applied for the individual(s) included in the proposed budget on the project.   

      • Benefits: Fringe benefits are calculated using the current planning Composite Benefit Rates (CBR) in effect for the UC San Diego. CBRs are reviewed and approved by UC San Diego’s cognizant Federal agency, the Department of Health and Human Services.

      • Tuition/Fees:Tuition Remission is calculated at rates currently in effect at the UCSD.

        Indirects: UC San Diego’s indirect costs are calculated based on Modified Total Direct Costs (MTDC) as defined in 2 CFR Part 200.68 using Facilities and Administration (F&A) rates approved by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).  Rates established by UC San Diego’s F&A rate agreement dated May 23, 2018 may be found here:
