Yes. Nine or ten month faculty may request summer salary on a grant application.
Professor Smith is a faculty member on a nine month contract and wishes to work two (2) summer months on a grant funded project that will be conducted primarily on the Drake Campus. His nine month salary is $48,000. What should he build into the grant application for salary on his grant? Annual salary ($48,000) divided by 9 months = $5,333. Monthly salary is $5,333.
Drake would use his monthly salary ($5,333) to calculate what he can earn per month on a summer contract. So, if Prof. Smith wants to work two summer months on a grant funded project, then he would request that $10,666 + fringes be built into the grant budget for his summer salary. In this example that amount would total $11,498.
Salary for Smith $5,333 x 2 months = $10,666
Fringes for Smith @7.8% = $10,666 x 0.78 = $832
Total Salary/Fringes = $11,498

The short answer to this question is "Yes" drake's facilities and administrative (F&A) costs are currently 30% of modified total direct costs.
Modified total direct costs are the total direct costs, excluding capital equipment (items costing $5,000 ore more), tuition and fees, and that portion of each subcontract exceeding $25,000.
F&A costs must be requested at the current negotiated rate, unless the sponsor has a published policy restricting the payment of F&A costs or will only pay F&A costs at a specific rate. The Provost and Vice President of Business & Finance jointly approve all waivers of indirect cost recovery.
