Indirect Costs This section applies to all grant recipients that request reimbursement of indirect costs in their grant application. In accordance with HHS Grants Policy Statement, Part II–27, IHS requires applicants to obtain a current indirect cost rate agreement prior to award. The rate agreement must be prepared in accordance with the applicable cost principles and guidance as provided by the cognizant agency or office. A current rate covers the applicable grant activities under the current award’s budget period. If the current rate is not on file with the DGO at the time of award, the indirect cost portion of the budget will be restricted. The restrictions remain in place until the current rate is provided to the DGO. Generally, indirect costs rates for IHS grantees are negotiated with the Division of Cost Allocation http:// rates.psc.gov/ and the Department of Interior (National Business Center) http://www.aqd.nbc.gov/indirect/ indirect.asp. If your organization has questions regarding the indirect cost policy, please call (301) 443–5204 to request assistance. 4.
