Primary Information

    The Finance Division at Tufts provides a list of fringe benefit rates for the current fiscal year (July 1 to June 30).  Fringe benefit rates are used in planning for departmental and research purposes.  

    Unrestricted rates are for non-grant salaries.
    Restricted rates are for salaries charged to grants.
    Both are applied year round for faculty/staff.  

    The Mandated rate is for part-timers < 17.5 hours per week.  Students are not charged fringe rates during September through May, but in June/July/August the Mandated rate applies.  

    Post Doc rate is used specifically for Post Docs.
    Faculty Summer Supplement is used specifically for Faculty Summer Supplements.

    Please note that effective May 1 2016, any department for whom an employee enrolls in ACA coverage offered will be charged the benefits fringe rate for all hours that the ACA eligible/enrolled employee works.  For more information about ACA, please visit this page.

    Rate Agreement (pages 4 & 5 for details about fringe rates)

    Please note the provisional (PROV) fringe benefit rates are noted in the rate agreement. These provisional rates are to be used for budgeting purposes on grant and contract proposals for awards that will begin after June 30, 2019. These rates are typically used on proposal submissions during the spring, before we get a new HHS Rate Agreement in June.
