Cost Sharing

Cost Sharing is created when the total cost of a sponsored project is not fully reimbursed by the sponsor.  Part of award management is tracking any type of committed cost sharing.


UF Cost Sharing Policy

It is the policy of the University that only mandatory cost sharing is offered to sponsors.  Here, the Office of Research explains this policy, describes the circumstances under which an exemption is merited, defines the types of cost sharing (mandatory, voluntary committed, and voluntary uncommitted), and the requirements of each.  Be sure to review the Cost Sharing FAQ expandable section for important information.
