FY 2020 ERE rates are now loaded into ERA.
The new rates will be automatically applied to Funding Proposals (FPs) created on or after July 19th (tomorrow).
Pre-existing FPs, and those created today (7/18), will not automatically update to the new rates. However, users can apply the update to in-process FPs by selecting the “7/19/2019” effective date on Budget Smartform 1.2 F&A Rate Determination, Question 10.0.
Any proposals submitted on or after Aug 1, 2019 must use FY20 ERE rates.
The Salaries, Wages, and ERE page and Budget Worksheet on researchadmin is being updated with the new ERE rates. The updated F&A Rate Agreement is available on the F&A Documents tab of the F&A Sitelet.
For proposals submitted with old ERE rates – if a copy of the corresponding (older version of our) rate agreement is needed, please contact RAhelp@asu.edu or your assigned Proposal GCO.
