Indirect Cost Rates
The US Department of Education (USDE) has given DPI authority to issue indirect cost rates for Local Education Agencies (LEAs), including the regional school, lab schools, and charter schools.
Grantees that receive their indirect cost rates from DPI use the rates to recover organization-wide administrative costs of managing federal grants, such as costs related to accounting, budgeting, purchasing, auditing, and payroll processing.
