Indirect Cost Services

The Indirect Cost Services (ICS) negotiates and issues indirect cost rates on behalf of the federal government. Indirect costs include expenses (such as advertising, computing, maintenance, security, supervision, etc.) incurred in joint usage and difficult to assign to or identify with a direct function or program. ICS services help ensure that indirect costs paid by the U.S. Government are legally sound, fair, and equitable.
