Federal Budget: Overview and Opportunities; May 31, 3:30
On May 31, in the Orbach Science Library, Room 240, at 3:30 there will be a presentation and discussion on the federal budget. Representative from Lewis Burke associates will present info on the proposed budget as it impacts universities. I forgot the analysis in the last newsletter and waited until I got a good bird photo to resend.
What are indirect costs anyway?
There is much discussion in DC about the budget including F&A (or indirect costs) on grants. If you have 20 minutes, this video by Sally Rockey (when she was at NIH) presents a clear overview.
