Indirect costs are already incorporated into master partnership agreement for funding from OMAFRA. No additional indirect costs are required on a project-by-project basis, on the amount requested from OMAFRA.
However, indirect costs must be included at the applicable rate (e.g. 25% or 40%) on cash contributions from Government and Industry Sponsors when those contributions leverage or “match” OMAFRA funding.
