Endowment Approach to Overhead or Indirect Charges
Agreeing upon a "fair price" for any work is subject to much interpretation.At the Endowment, we expect to pay a fair market rate for quality work.That said, perhaps nothing is more varied than the approaches that research organizations take to addressing overhead or indirect costs associated with project work.
To add a level of equitable comparison across and between service providers, the Endowment has established a consistent policy on Indirect Cost Rate Recovery. The full policy and an FAQ can be found here. Responding to RFP Calls

Each RFP announcement will be accompanied by a specific set of criteria that detail the project scope, timelines and other pertinent information Questions regarding responses to specific RFP requests should be directed to the Endowment staff contact listed in the RFP.
