Updates from MUSC's Offices of Research Administration


Updated Fringe Benefit Rates

Please begin budgeting with the new composite fringe benefit rates listed in the table below for all future proposal submissions.  Note these new rates will be required in all proposals submitted on or after August 15, 2017.

The effective date for the new fringe benefits rates to be charged to all sponsored projects is July 1st, 2017

The new rates have been updated on the Proposal Preparation section of the ORSP website: http://academicdepartments.musc.edu/research/orsp/proposal_preparation/.

Cayuse424 has also been updated with these rates to be the default budget rates.  Any pending proposals in Cayuse424 will need to be updated to the new rates.  To accomplish this please re-autofill each investigator on the proposal using the “Manage Key Persons” button on the budget page.  When the salary is updated, the system will capture the new fringe rate.  Please direct any questions about this to your assigned Grants Administrator in ORSP.
