Indirect Cost Rates and Cost Allocation Issues

A challenging part of running a high performance nonprofit is understanding, using and documenting your indirect cost activities. Under our Uniform Guidance — 2 CFR 200 — much of nonprofit grant management was simplified. However, indirect costs treatment became more complicated and risky for any nonprofit who has an accounting system that includes indirect costs. In today’s “era of accountability” understanding and following the federal rules for cost allocation and dealing with indirect cost rates is a critical function for most nonprofits. The past few years of nonprofit operations under 2 CFR 200 have taught our nonprofit community key areas of compliance, risk, best practices and auditor interests. 2 CFR 200 changed key rules such as non-federal entity types of indirect cost rates under federal awards, recognition of federal indirect cost rates, one-time rate extensions of a federally-approved negotiated indirect cost rate and many others. Knowing what the key changes are, how they are impacting nonprofits and what auditors focus on is not an easy job.
