The Cost Analysis Team is responsible for critical financial and operational functions including monthly financial reconciliations, recharge/service center rates, human subject incentive ClinCard program, effort certification, and facilities and administrative (F&A) rate negotiation. We partner with Post Award to provide support on complex projects, audit, and initiatives and pride ourselves on improving effectiveness, efficiency, compliance, education, and customer service aspects of business processes, systems, and staff support in sponsored program administration.

Effort reporting is the method of certifying to federal branching agencies that the effort required as a condition of the award has actually been completed.

ORA is the authoritative entity to review and approve billing rates for the University of Miami. ORA should be used as a resource to obtain guidance and information concerning compliance with federal regulations and University policies and procedures as they pertain to service center operations.


Facilities and Administrative (F&A) Rates are the mechanisms used to reimburse the University for the infrastructure support costs associated with sponsored research and other sponsored agreements. Please visit this page to learn more about the Fringe Benefit Rates at the University of Miami.

Fringe Benefit Rates deal with the cost of an employee's benefits divided by the wages paid to an employee for the hours spent working. Please visit this page to learn more about the Fringe Benefit Rates at the University of Miami.
