Cost Share: Tackling the Challenges

Includes a Live Event on 10/25/2021 at 2:00 PM (EDT)

(90 minutes) In Research Administration, we talk about cost sharing as a real cost to our institutions and we recognize what is at stake if we don’t meet a cost share commitment. We often wish we could redefine commitments that were made in the proposal because they are difficult to track, and we find ourselves scrambling to resolve shortages or recovery from internal sources at the very end. Join us as we go beyond the basic definition of cost share.  Webinar hosts will discuss their experiences and share how they tackled cost share challenges throughout the life of the project. Case studies will be used, and best practices shared as you consider how to alleviate some of the administrative burden. 

Prerequisites

  • Working knowledge of Uniform Guidance 2 CFR 200.306.
  • Definition understanding of three types of cost share: mandatory, voluntary committed, and voluntary uncommitted.
  • Knowledge of local institutional policies and expectations related to cost share.
