Distribution Percentage:

Based on the APU institutional indirect cost policy, indirect cost recovery funding is designed to support and increase external grant activities, thus enhancing curricular development, research and scholarship, as well as outreach by faculty, administrators, departments, centers, and other entities. The policy is aligned with best practices in the field of grants and contracts management at colleges and universities.

This policy will accomplish the following objectives:

§ Provide individuals and departments with tangible incentives and rewards for seeking external funding in support of departmental, college and institutional stated missions;

§ Enhance APU’s competitiveness in seeking additional external funds through matching funds and internally supported pre-award planning activities;

§ Cover institutional costs, induced by the granted project, from security and liability to utility costs.
