CLARIFICATION OF ACCOUNTING FOR CONTRACTUAL F&A COSTS

Release Date:  August 1, 2001

NOTICE:  NOT-MH-01-009

National Institute of Mental Health

On May 7, 2001 the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) issued PAR-01-
089, Advanced Centers for Intervention and Services Research (ACISR) and PAR-
01-090, Developing Centers for Intervention and Services Research (DCISR).  
These PARs invited applications for both advanced and developing research 
centers to establish infrastructure to conduct interventions and services 
research.  Information about these announcements is available at 
(http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-01-089.html) for the ACISR 
and (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-01-090.html) for the 
DCISR.

The purpose of this notice is to clarify how the F&A costs for contracts and 
consortium arrangements will be handled in these centers.  While the F&A 
costs associated with all contractual and consortium arrangements are 
considered as direct costs to the applicant organization, for the purposes of 
these announcements only, these will not count against the direct cost limits 
noted in PAR-01-089 and PAR-01-090. (However, these costs should be indicated 
as instructed on PHS 398, rev. 5/2001.)
