Cost Accounting

We can help you with: 

  • Assistance with completing the space survey
  • Questions about F&A, GAIR, or fringe benefit rates

What we do

  • Negotiate the Facilities and Administrative (F&A) rate with the Department of Health and Human Services
  • Prepare other cost studies such as the General Administrative Recharge (GAR) rate and the General Infrastructure Recharge (GIR) rate. Combined, these comprise GAIR.
