Where Should Graduate Student Fringe Benefits be Listed on the SF-424 in MyFunding?

with No Comments

Since the University of Pittsburgh’s Federally Negotiated Rate Agreement excludes Graduate Student Fringe Benefits (GSFB) from the application of Indirect Costs, the GSFB must be listed as a General Cost when developing a budget in the MyFunding module to ensure that Indirect Costs are not applied to the GSFB.

Once the SF-424 is subsequently generated, the GSFB costs should be manually moved from the Other Direct Costs section (Section F of the SF-424):

to the Other Personnel section (Section B of the SF-424) in order to be consistent with the University of Pittsburgh’s Financial Guideline on Direct Charging Practices.
