Conferences/indirect cost exemptions
Conferences arranged by the University may in some cases be exempt from flat-rate debiting of indirect costs. Instead, the administrative expenses of the conferences are to be filed directly under the project (the cost unit). Conditions that must be fulfilled for exemption to apply include that the majority of conference participants are non-University staff, that the costs of the full event including accommodation are covered by the University, that invitations were issued/the event was advertised and that there is a programme. The reason for the rules is to split the indirect expenses across the involved department’s cost units more evenly. Requests for exemption from flat-rate debiting of indirect costs must be authorised by the head of department and is done on this form.
