Indirect Costs Rate Variation for University Research: Several Conventional Explanations Do Not Work.
Massy, William F.; Olson, Jeffery E.
Research in Higher Education, v35 n4 p393-413 Aug 1994
To address concerns that universities are overcharging the federal government for indirect costs of research programs, data from seven major research universities were used to simulate a standardization of costs and policies to eliminate differences widely assumed to contribute to rate variation. Results suggest universities are not overcharging the government. (Author/MSE)
