Fringe Benefits Rates

Fringe Benefits Rates are negotiated along with Facilities & Administrative Rates, and must be applied to all salaries included on a grant budget. (Current rates will be actually applied to salaries and wages when they are paid, regardless of what was budgeted in the original grant application. Please keep this in mind when budgeting.)
