Using the 10% De Minimis Rate

Ins and Outs of Indirect Costs Webinar Series


Learn which organizations may receive the 10% de minimis rate and what “indirect costs” will be covered with this rate. This webinar discusses how a CAA would calculate an actual indirect cost rate using the Modified Total Direct Cost (MTDC) method required for calculation of the de minimis rate by the Uniform Guidance, and explores strategies for addressing a reality where actual indirect costs are higher or lower than the 10% de minimis rate.
