Facilities and Administrative Distribution Model
Effective July 1, 2007, the University of North Dakota adopted a new F&A Distribution Model. The purpose of the model is to provide funding back to principal investigators, departments and colleges that are directly involved in sponsored projects both as incentive and as institutional investment. Under this model, each college must have an approved policy in place that defines the internal distribution within the college to PIs and departments. F&A returned to the department and college must be spent in support of research and scholarly activity.
The model provides an amount based on a predetermined percentage of the actual spending (F&A generated) for the prior year with funding transfers made quarterly over the course of the year. The total approved allocation will be identified/communicated at the time of the first quarter transfer (October).
The use of this model as a resource allocation tool is viewed as an integral component to support a developing research enterprise. It is important to note that each fiscal year allocation does not occur until approved by the President. As with all institutional allocations, it is subject to availability of funding. Periodic consideration will be given to continuation/modification of the model in the context of current circumstances.
Distribution of F&A
Each project distribution is determined by the type of rate that generated the recovery (i.e. instruction, research, other sponsored). The Model Summary outlines each rate type and allocation percentages.
