Participant Cost

The option to include Participant Cost as an expense in compliance with 2CFR 200, Uniform Guidance is not yet available in EGMS Proposal Prep for Federal Sponsors (except in NSF budgets where this choice has always been a possibility). Check the Uniform Guidance Implementation PI Quick Guide for more information on charging Participant Support Costs.

NIH or other Federal Sponsor budgets can be created in EGMS with the NSF model to achieve the correct calculation of F&A if the user wishes to include Participant Costs, but it cannot be flowed over to the PRF correctly.

If you have any questions on how to implement these costs in an EGMS budget please contact the EGMS helpline at 612-624-1600.

The roll-out for this feature is anticipated in mid-Winter, 2015.
