Charging Directly to Sponsored Projects Costs that are Normally Considered Indirect
Cornell University expects its faculty, staff, and students, when dealing with federal and other sponsored funds, to follow Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP); comply with all government and sponsor rules and regulations; and follow established standards for determining when it is appropriate to propose and, if approved, directly charge costs normally considered Facilities and Administrative (F&A) costs to a sponsored project.
