Overhead. Currently, the overhead costs of each research project are billed as an effort and maintained on a special account, at the discretion of the RMCC principle. The reason for these fees is to cover the indirect costs that the research imposes on the university, such as. B the purchase of additional project-related library books or the hiring of new administrators to manage research agreements, financial transfers and contracts. However, according to the RMCC, only a small portion of the overhead costs collected was actually used for this type of expenditure. In the 2009/10 GJ, RMCC Research raised $1.7 million in overhead costs, of which $1.5 million was redistributed to fund research projects for which there was no sponsor. Only $0.2 million was used to offset the indirect costs described by RMCC. Most of the parties interviewed were aware of the overhead costs and did not question them, but did not know whether the collection of such a fee from another section of the DND was in accordance with the guidelines.
The department`s financial policy officials have indicated that RMCC is only entitled to cover the direct costs of projects funded by other DND agencies. . . .
