Office of Research and Project Administration. All government grants and contracts are administered through this Princeton University office up to the point at which the sponsored award is created in the Princeton financial system. Post-award administration is primarily handled by the sponsored research accounting section of the Office of Finance and Treasury.
A project, or part of a project, is considered to be performed off-campus if the activity is conducted at a location other than Princeton University's academic lands and the majority of the Facilities portion of F&A (indirect costs), e.g., operation and maintenance, depreciation or lease of buildings, equipment and improvements, and library associated with Princeton University's facilities, both owned and leased, is not applicable. If a project is located in leased space and the lease is a direct charge to the project, then the project is considered off-campus; if the project is not charged directly for the lease cost and the lease is a part of Princeton University's Facilities & Administrative (indirect cost) rate, then the project is considered on-campus. In other words, the classification of on- or off-campus is made solely for the purpose of applying the correct Facilities & Administrative (indirect cost) rate.
