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.
