2024 Housing and Conference Non-University Differential Rates

All BML recharge rates are subject to a 36% Non-University Differential (NUD) assessment for non-University clients through 6/30/2024.

  • Per UC policy, University-approved recharge rates include a Non-University Differential (NUD) for all non-University users for the use of facilities, resources and/or services that operate as self-supporting activities.
  • The NUD is a component of the University’s federally negotiated indirect cost rate and is applied to recover indirect costs incurred by BML when providing services to non-University users. The NUD is derived from the Total Facilities and Administration Cost Rate (F&A) charged to sponsors of contracts and grants.
  • Components that are not typically utilized by outside clients, including Library, Sponsored Project Administration, and Equipment, are deducted from the F&A to arrive at the NUD.

The Budget & Institutional Analysis (BIA) division of UC Davis has determined that Non-UC affiliate researchers who hold a Research Associate (WOS) courtesy appointment at BML are not exempted from the NUD assessment.
