What is a Cost Accounting Disclosure Statement?

OMB Circular A-21 requires a university, including the University of Vermont, with over $25 million of federal sponsored agreements in a fiscal year to disclose its cost accounting standards in a Cost Accounting Disclosure statement (DS-2). The University's DS-2 articulates what cost types are typically direct charged to sponsored agreements and what costs are included in the University's rates (F&A rates, benefit rates, auxiliary/recharge rates).  The federally government expects the University to adhere to our cost accounting standards to ensure that double charging on federally sponsored agreements do not occur.
