For Instruction (Training) Minimum of 42% of Modified Total Direct Costs if a funding agency has a policy/guidelines prohibiting full indirect cos recovery or has special requirements regarding indirect costs, a copy of the policy must accompany the proposal at the time it is submitted to the Office of Research for University approval. If federal funds are "spilled through" a state agency, full federal indirect costs for research are encouraged.
