Unallowable Costs/Expenses

Unallowable costs are those which cannot be included in the direct costs of sponsored agreements or in the Institute's indirect cost rate according to OMB Circular A-21. (Rensselaer generally allows many of these costs.) Proper classification of these costs will preclude Rensselaer from incurring future liability for inappropriate charges to sponsored research, and provides a means to exclude these costs from the Institute's indirect cost base.
