2 1 Continuous Learning for Administrators of Sponsored Programs (CLASP) Elective NIH TRAINING GRANTS July 09, 2014

3 2 Training Grant Close Out Close out is an on-going activity Involves the department and ORACS Think about close out from the first day the award comes in the door Know your training grant financial terms (see Appendix L, Glossary of Terms for NIH Training Grants)

4 3 Trainee Costs Stipends- a subsistence allowance to defray living expenses during the period of training  At the approved levels for awards made during the Federal government’s fiscal year (October – September)  Graduate Student – Subcode 1690  Postdoc – Subcode 1560

5 4 Trainee Costs Tuition and Fees, – itemize and request full needs. NIH will apply the formula at the time of award Subcodes 4XXX Tuition at the postdoc level is limited to that required for specific courses in support of approved training program, requires prior approval from NIH

6 5 Trainee Travel Scientific Meetings/Conferences Allowable Does not require prior approval by NIH

7 6 Training-Related Expenses Institutional Funds  Used to defray costs of other research training related expenses  Examples include:  Staff salaries  Health Fees  Consultant costs  Equipment  Research supplies  Staff travel

8 7 Training-Related Expenses (Continued) Health Insurance/Fees Health Insurance/Fees can be for single or family coverage Subcodes: 2970 UHS charges 1900 Pooled benefit rate

9 8 Facilities and Administrative Costs 8% of Total Allowable Direct Costs  Calculation excludes:  Tuition/Fees  Equipment

10 9 Rebudgeting No prior approval required*: Stipends  Tuition & Fees only Tuition  Stipends only Trainee Travel  any category Training Related Expenses  any category Prior approval is required to rebudget Stipends and/or Tuition into Travel or TRE. *Unless otherwise restricted

11 10 Unallowable Benefits It is inappropriate and unallowable for organizations to seek funds or to charge institutional research training grants for costs that normally are associated with employee benefits. This will come up again in closeout. This includes: FICA Worker’s Compensation Unemployment Insurance

12 11 Position Codes and Benefits Position Code 0095 – Postdocs Not employees, therefore no benefits Can have UHS Health Fees If any benefits are charged for this position, charges get moved back to benefit pool account Position Code 0999 – Graduate Students Not employees, therefore no benefits Can have UHS Health Fees If any benefits are charged for this position, charges get moved back to benefit pool account All other position codes that have benefits charged, the unallowable portion will be adjusted to your department account

13 12 Allowable Components of Pooled Rates for Trainees FY13FY14FY15 Rate Rate

14 13 Report of Expenditures (ROE) Timing of the ROE Importance of proper preparation Step by step through the ROE (Appendix N)

15 14 Financial Status Report (FFR) Required annually no later than 90 days after the close of each budget period Trainee stipends, tuition and health fees are obligated for a full 12-month appointment from the budget period in which the appointment was initiated Portions of stipends, tuition and health fees that extend beyond the budget period are reported as “unliquidated obligations” (Included in Section 4A on ROE and 10F on FFR)

16 15 Financial Status Report (FFR) Carry over –  The amount remaining after outlays and unliquidated obligations have been accounted for  In most cases, prior approval for carry over is required

17 16 Tips for a Smooth Close Out Review monthly ledgers Monitor and track individual trainee expenses  Including monitoring annually trainee’s pay (Cum Sal) to match the NIH appointment form 2271, Appendix E Update appointment forms  Close out will be easier if appointment forms coincide with university pay periods  Example: if semi-monthly, 1 st or 16 th ; if monthly, 1 st Timely completion of Termination Forms (PHS 416-7, Appendix H)
