Indirect Cost Policy
The Stewardship Network (TSN) maintains a policy limiting indirect costs (overhead) to a maximum 5% rate for grants and contracts billed to TSN by colleges and universities. Direct costs are defined as costs associated with services that benefit a specific project. These costs would not be incurred if not for the existence of the program or project being funded. This includes salaries and associated benefits for personnel directly involved with the project, materials, supplies, consultants, contractors, printing, travel, equipment rental, and equipment purchases (ownership of such equipment must be transferred to The Stewardship Network after the project is completed). Indirect costs are defined as expenses that are related to the general operations and administration of an organization or that benefit more than one project. They are not directly allocated to nor identified with a specific project.
