Functional Classification of Sponsored Agreements:

Instruction and Departmental Research includes training grants, except for research training (see below).

Organized Research generally includes research and development activities of biomedical and physical science (chemistry, physics, psychology etc.) and engineering departments where such activities “utilize the same facilities as other research and development activities.” Such facilities are laboratories, which consume a disproportionate amount of space related resources (e.g. utilities, ventilation, hazardous waste disposal and housekeeping services). Sponsored research also includes those activities known as research training (e.g. NIH T28) grants because such training is conducted in laboratories alongside research activities and “utilize the same facilities as other research and development activities.”

Other Sponsored Activities includes awards for public service and all other sponsored activities that are not Instruction or Research as defined above. They include the researchand development activities of social sciences and humanities departments, which do not utilize the same facilities as physical science projects.

On- and Off-Campus Classification of Sponsored Agreements:

  1. Use the Off-Campus Adjacent rate for projects conducted within the commuting distance of the City ofPhiladelphia (Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia Counties in Pennsylvania; Burlington, Camden, and Gloucester Counties in New Jersey; and New Castle County in Delaware.)
  2. Use the Off-Campus Remote rate for projects conducted outside of the above counties.
