Policy on Paying Indirect Costs to Collaborators

ICER values the opportunity to work with external collaborators on many of its projects and recognizes that several academic institutions require the payment of indirect costs, or overhead, to the parent institution. As a non-profit entity, we have a fiduciary duty to be careful stewards of our contributors’ funds. As such, we cap our funding of indirect costs at 12% of total direct costs. Questions about this policy can be directed to the Chief Operating Officer
