Health Care Education and Training (HCET) supports organizations, health care systems, and universities whose work advances the mission and goals of HCET. HCET adopts this Indirect Cost Policy as of July 28, 2020 to recognize our vendor and service partners’ Indirect Costs that are not directly attributable to projects or activities being funded by grants awarded to HCET, but are necessary to support the grant-funded projects or activities.

In adopting this policy, HCET aims to be explicit, transparent and equitable across all systems. More learning and iteration will be needed to improve this policy over time, but the goals include:

*Supporting contractors and consultants to accomplish the purposes of the project.

*Structuring proposals or project budgets according to financial need and costs associated with a project.

*Paying the direct costs of projects plus a fair share of associated indirect costs.

*Promoting consistent, effective and efficient allocation of resources.

Indirect Cost Rate for HCET funding is subject to the following maximum Indirect Cost Rates:
