2. ALLOWABLE COSTS AND COST SHARING

A. Allowable Costs-/

The allowable costs for reimbursement under the Subgrants

shall be limited to those which are reasonable, allocable

and allowable in accordance with the terms of (1) the Sub-

grant, (2) any negotiated advance understanding on particu-

lar cost items and (3) OMB Circular A-21 in effect on the

date of this Grant.

B. Cost Sharing

1. Principle341/

The matching requirements for U.S. universities partici-

pating in CRSP is based on the concept that the goal of

the research is mutual to AID's interest for LDC develop-

mental assistance programs and to the domestic interest

of participating U.S. universities for their states'

agriculture. With this mutuality of interest, it is ex-

pected that the participating universities will make

modifications in appropriate domestic research programs

to focus them definitively on achievements of the CRSP

goal. It is anticipated that the cost of this modifica-

tion willbe paid by the participating universities from

non-federal resources and that this cost will constitute

Soil Management CRSP Grant.

Draft 2-2
05/06/83


the universities' matching contributions. At the same

time, it has been recognized that there might be cases

where modifications would require some federal funds.

However, the basic principle of matching contemplated

that AID's support would not be directed toward domestic

research but to encourage the focus of universities'

domestic research on objectives relative to the CRSP,

i.e. to solve LDC development problems and to benefit

U.S. agriculture.

2. Requirements2--4

a. For each year of performance, a Subgrantee under the

Soil Management CRSP Grant shall assure that expendi-

tures from non-federal funds (defined in paragraph b

below) equal or exceed 25% of that year's total ex-

penditures for country research project costs, ex-

cept for exclusions listed hereafter. Prior and sub-

sequent year's non-federal contributions in excess

of 25% may be applied to compensate for any year's

shortfall. It is understood and agreed that extended

failure to comply with the sharing arrangement shall

be considered sufficient reason for termination of

the Subgrant. Should there be any accumulated short-

fall by the Subgrantee at the time of termination,

or at the expiration of the Subgrant, the Subgrantee


2Grant from the Agency for International Development to North Carolina
State University as the Management Entity for the Soil Management
CRSP (Article IX).





Draft 2-3
05/06/83


shall refund to AID the amount of such shortfall,

unless an alternative disposition is made by the

Grant Officer.

b. All costs associated with the performance of Subgrantee

faculty and staff, both domestically and overseas,

and for both short- and long-term assignments are

program cost of the CRSP that must be matched.

c. To be considered a non-federal contribution, it shall

be from the Subgrantee's non-federal funds, not

chargeable at any time to any U.S. Government funded

activity, and must be directly related to costs in-

curred in performance of that portion of this CRSP

for which the Subgrant was awarded.

d. The criteria and procedures for allowability of cash

and in-kind contributions by the Subgrantee as non-

federal contributions will be as set forth in Attach-

ment E, "Cost Sharing and Matching", to OMB Circular

No. A-110 shall also apply.

e. The maximum Management Entity costs which AID will

finance under the Grant shall not exceed that speci-

fied in the Grant budget. Subject to that limitation,

Management Entity costs will be fully funded by AID

and are not subject to the 25% cost sharing

requirement.

3. Exclusions2, 3, 4/

a. Funds expended under the terms of a formal CRSP-collaborating

country Subagreement for utilization by the collaborating





Draft 2-4

country participating institution for CRSP related

activities do not require cost sharing.

b. Equipment and supplies identified for use in the col-

laborating country Subagreement and purchased by a

participating U.S. institution for the collaborating

country and the U.S. use in the collaborating country

are excluded. It is recognized that funds for such

equipment may not be committed under the Subagree-

ment but may be held apart in reserve by the partici-

pating U.S. institution for such equipment and

supplies.

c. Subgrant funds used for payments of costs incurred

by the Subgrantee for training of foreign nationals

outside their country do not have to be matched. It

is expected that provisions for such training would

normally be made in the formal agreement.

than one year to run provided that, if the Subgrant

is extended, the appointed shall also be extended

to the full two years.

b. When a two-year appointment is not required, appoint-

ment may be made for less than two years but in

5. PERSONNEL ALLOWANCES AND POST DIFFERENTIAL-/

A. Living Quarters Allowance

Living quarters allowance is granted to reimburse an employ-

ee for substantially all of the cost for either temporary

or residence quarters whenever Government-owned or

Government-rented quarters are not provided at post without

charge. Such costs are those incurred for temporary lodging

(temporary lodging allowance) or one unit of residence quar-

ters (living quarters allowance) and include rent, plus

any costs not included therein for heat, light, fuel, gas,

electricity and water. The temporary lodging allowance and

the living quarters allowance are never both payable to

an employee for the same period of time.

The Subgrantee will be reimbursed for payments made to regu-

lar employees for a living quarters allowance for rent and

utilities if such facilities are not supplied. Such allow-

ance shall not exceed the amount paid AID employees of equiv-
alent rank in the collaborating country, in accordance with

either the Standardized Regulations (Government Civilians,

Foreign Areas), Chapter 130, as from time to time amended,

or other rates approved by the Mission Director. Short-term

employees may be paid either per diem at rates prescribed

by the Federal Travel Regulations, as from time to time

amended or living quarters allowance, whichever is more

economical, during the time spent at posts in the collaborat-

ing country under the Subgrant.

the employee and his family for a period not in excess of

(i) three months after first arrival at a new post in a

foreign area or a period ending with the occupation of resi-

dence (permanent) quarters, if earlier, and (ii) one month

immediately preceding final departure from the post subse-

quent to the necessary vacating of residence quarters.

The Subgrantee will be reimbursed for payments made to regu-

lar and short-term employees and authorized dependents for

temporary lodging allowance, in lieu of living quarters

allowance, not to exceed the amount set forth in the

Standardized Regulations (Government Civilians, Foreign

Areas), Chapter 120, as from time to time amended.

lar employees for post allowance not to exceed those paid

AID employees in the collaborating country, in accordance

with the Standardized Regulations (Government Civilians,

Foreign Areas), Chapter 220, as from time to time amended.

educational allowances for their dependent children in a-

mounts not to exceed those set forth in the Standardized

Regulations (Government Civilians, Foreign Areas), Chapter

270, as from time to time amended.

E. Educational Travel

lar employees for educational travel for their dependent

children provided such payment does not exceed that which

would be payable in accordance with the Standardized Regula-

tions (Government Civilians, Foreign Areas), Chapter 280,

as from time to time amended. Educational travel shall not

be authorized for regular employees whose assignment is

less than 2 years.

F. Post Differential

Post differential is an additional compensation which may

be paid regular employees for service at places in foreign





Draft 5-4
05/06/83



areas where conditions of environment differ substantially

from conditions of environment in the continental United

States and warrant additional compensation as a recruitment

and retention incentive.

In areas where post differential is paid to AID direct-hire

employees, post differential not to exceed the percentage

of salary as is provided such AID employees in accordance

with the Standardized Regulations (Government Civilians,

Foreign Areas), Chapter 500 (except the limitation contained

in Section 552, "Ceiling of Payment") Tables-Chapter 900,

as from time to time amended, will be reimbursable hereunder

for regular employees in respect to amounts earned during

the time such employees actually spend overseas on work

under the Subgrant. When such post differential is provided

to Subgrantee employees, it shall be payable beginning on

the date of arrival at the post of assignment and continue,

including periods away from post on official business until

the close of business on the day of departure from post

of assignment en route to the United States. Sick or vaca-

tion leave taken at or away from the post of assignment

will not interrupt the continuity of the assignment or re-

quire a discontinuance of such post differential payments,

provided such leave is not taken within the United States

or the territories of the United States. Post differential

will not be payable while the employee is away from his

post of assignment for purposes of home leave.

Draft 6-2
09/28/83


Grant Officer and Program Manager may approve in ad-

/ vance. Home leave must be taken in the United States,

the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico or the possessions of

the United States, and any days spent elsewhere will

be charged to vacation leave or leave without pay.

3. Notwithstanding the requirement in paragraph C2 of this

section, that the Subgrantee's regular employee must

have served two years overseas under the Subgrant to

be eligible for home leave, the Subgrantee may grant

current tour of duty under the Subgrant and

c. the regular employee shall have agreed to return

to the collaborating country to serve out the remain-

der of his current tour of duty and an additional

ing, inclusive of authorized delays en route, to the

date of arrival at the United States port of debarkation

from international travel. Allowable vacation and sick

leave taken while overseas, but not leave without pay,

shall be included in the required period of service

overseas. An amount equal to the number of days of vaca-

tion and sick leave in the United States, the Common-

wealth of Puerto Rico, or the possessions of the United

States will be added to the required period of service

overseas.

5. Travel to and from the United States for home leave

7. PERSONNEL TRAVEL-'

A. General Policy

Allowable costs of travel under the Subgrants shall be in

accordance with the policy and practice of the Subgrantee,

OMB Circular A-21 and other provisions of this document.

of this document conflict with OMB Circular A-21, the latter

shall prevail unless approved by the Grant Officer.

B. International Travel

1. To Host Country

The AID Grant Officer has approved all international

travel provided that the Subgrantee obtains concurrence

from the Project Manager prior to sending any individual

outside the United States to perform work under the

Subgrant. Such concurrence shall be confirmed in writ-

ing. For this purpose, the Subgrantee shall submit a

request to the Director, Management Entity, Soil Manage-

ment CRSP, at least 40 days in advance of any travel

to be undertaken outside the United States. The Manage-

ment Entity will communicate with the Project Manager

rence is received, the Subgrantee shall provide the

cognizant Mission or U.S. Embassy of any changes in

arrival date and flight identification of Subgrant fi-

nanced travelers.


--Developed from "Standard Provisions", Section 6, accompanying the
Soil Management CRSP Grant.

Draft
09/28/83


2. Within Host Country

Reimbursement for local travel shall not be in excess

of the rates established by the Mission Director for

AID employees in the country.

3. Outside the Host Country

For regular and short-term employees posted in a collabo-

rating country, the Project Manager has approved travel

to other countries including the United States provided

that the Subgrantee obtains evidence of concurrence

by the participating collaborating country institution,

the Mission in the country posted, the Mission in the

country to visit and approval of the Management Entity.

Reimbursement for such travel shall be an allowable

expenditure at per diem rates not in excess of those

established by USAID for non-U.S. locations and by the

Subgrantee institution for U.S. locations.

C. Funding from Local Currency

Travel to certain countries shall, at AID's option, be

funded from U.S.-owned local currency. When AID intends

to exercise this option, it will notify the Management Enti-

ty after receipt of advice of intent to travel required

above. AID will issue a Government Transportation Request

(GTR) which the Subgrantee may exchange for tickets, or

AID will issue the tickets directly. Use of such U.S.-owned

currencies will constitute a dollar charge to the Subgrant.

D. Preference for U.S. Flag Carriers

All international air travel under the Subgrants shall be

made on United States flag carriers. Exceptions to this





Draft 7-3
05/06/83


rule will be allowed in the following situations, provided

that the Subgrantee certifies to the facts in the voucher

and other documents retained as part of the required Sub-

grant records:

1. where the traveler, while enroute, has to wait six hours

or more to transfer to a U.S. flag air carrier to pro-

ceed to the intended destination,

2. where a flight by a U.S. flag air carrier is interrupted

by a stop anticipated to be six hours or more for re-

fueling, reloading, repairs, etc. and no other flight

by a U.S. flag air carrier is available during the six

hour period,

3. where by itself or in combination with other U.S. flag

or non-U.S. flag air carriers (if U.S. flag air carriers

are "unavailable") it takes 12 hours or longer from

the original airport to the destination airport to accom-

plish the Subgrantee's program than would service by

a non-U.S. flag air carrier or carriers or

4. when the elapsed travel time on a scheduled flight from

origin to destination airports by non-U.S. flag air

carriers) is three hours or less, and services by U.S.

chinaware and other articles which normally require

preliminary packing before removal from the residence.

2. Gross weight is obtained by adding to the net weight

the weight of lift vans, outside shipping containers

and the weight of dunnage or bracing material used to

secure articles in such vans or containers.

3. Vehicles which may be transported include passenger

automobiles, station wagons and certain small trucks

or similar vehicles which may be used primarily for

personal transportation, but transportation is not autho-

rized for trailers, airplanes or any vehicle intended

for commercial use.

Transportation at Government expense is limited to vehi-

cles having a gross size for shipping purposes of not

more than 15 measurement tons (600 cubic feet). An em-

ployee who ships a larger vehicle which otherwise quali-

fies for shipment at Government expense must pay all

costs which result from the excess size of the vehicle.

4. The cost of transporting motor vehicles shall not exceed

the cost of packing, crating and transportation by

surface.

above for household effects) not to exceed the following:

Gross weight
(pounds)
Employee 250
First dependent traveling 200
Second dependent traveling 150
Each additional dependent traveling 100

1. Unaccompanied baggage is considered to be those personal

belongings needed by the traveler immediately upon arriv-

al at destination. To permit the arrival of effects

to coincide with the arrival of the employee and depen-

dents, consideration should be given to advance ship-

ments of unaccompanied baggage.

2. This unaccompanied baggage may be shipped as air freight

by the most direct route between authorized points of

origin and destination regardless of the modes of travel

used.





Draft 8-4
05/06/83


3. The foregoing provision concerning "unaccompanied bag-

gage" is also applicable to home leave travel and to

short-term employees when these are authorized by the

terms of the Subgrant.

D. Consumables

When a post is designated as one at which conditions make

it difficult to obtain locally the consumables required

by employees and their dependents, the Management Entity

may authorize shipment of a separate additional allowance

for consumables, apart from the household effects allowances.

1. The amount of the weight for the separate consumable

allowance will be shown in the employee's travel authori-

zation, but in no case will it exceed the weight autho-

rized for household effects.

2. When consumables are shipped together with household

effects to these specified posts, the employee must

obtain documentation showing the weight of the consum-

ables shipped, since this weight must be charged to

the consumables allowance rather than the household

effects allowance to assure proper accounting. Employees

may ship consumables against their household effects

allowance as well, but when the employee intends to

claim against the consumables allowance, specific

weights must be provided.

ceed 4,500 pounds net for each employee without dependents

in the collaborating country and 7,500 pounds net for each

employee with dependents in the collaborating country.

F. Preference for U.S. Flag Air Carriers

Where international transportation of personal items is

by air freight, U.S. flag air carriers will be used to the

extent that such service is available.

In the event the Subgrantee selects other than a U.S. flag

air carrier for any portion of international air transporta-

tion, a certification will be attached to each voucher in-

volving such transportation which will be essentially as

follows:

ment under the Grant which include ocean shipment costs

sively for the purposes of the subordinate agreement. Such

records shall be maintained for three years following the

cial management. Notwithstanding the requirement for an

independent audit, the AID Inspector General and the Compt-

troller General of the United States or their duly autho-

performance of the Subgrant will not exceed the estimated

cost set forth in the Schedule of the Subgrant, and the

Subgrantee agrees to use its best efforts to carry out the

program specified in the Schedule and all obligations under

the Subgrant within such estimated cost.

B. The amount presently available for payment and allotted

to the Subgrant, the items covered thereby and the period

of performance which it is estimated the allotted amount

will cover are specified in the Schedule. It is contemplated

that from time to time additional funds will be allotted

to the Subgrant up to the full estimated cost set forth

in the Schedule. The Subgrantee agrees to carry out, or

have carried out, the program under the Subgrant up to the

point at which the total amount paid and payable by the

Government pursuant to the terms of the Subgrant approxi-
mates but does not exceed the total amount actually allotted

to the Subgrant.

C. If at any time the Subgrantee has reason to believe that

the costs which it expects to incur in carrying out the

program of the Subgrant in the next succeeding 60 days,

when added to all costs previously incurred, will exceed

75 percent of the total amount then allotted to the Subgrant,


-/Developed from "General Provisions, Cost Reimbursement Contract

Draft 19-2

the Subgrantee shall notify the Management Entity in writing

to that effect. The notice shall state the estimated amount

of additional funds required to continue the program for

the period set forth in the Schedule.

Sixty days prior to the end of the period specified in the

Schedule, the Subgrantee will advise the Management Entity

in writing as to the estimated amount of additional funds,

if any, that will be required for the timely carrying out

of the program under the Subgrant or for such further period

as may be specified in the Schedule or otherwise agreed

to by the parties.

If, after notification, pursuant to the above, additional

funds are not allotted by the end of the period set forth

in the Schedule or an agreed date substituted therefore,

the Management Entity will, upon written request by the

Subgrantee, terminate the Subgrant pursuant to the provi-

sions of the TERMINATION provision on such date. If the

Subgrantee, in the exercise of its reasonable judgment,

estimates that the funds available will allow it to continue

to discharge its obligation hereunder for a period extending

beyond such date, it shall specify the later date in its

request and the Management Entity, in its discretion, may

terminate this Subgrant on that later date.

D. Except as required by other provisions of the Subgrant,

specifically citing and stated to be an exception from this

provision, the Management Entity shall not be obligated

of the total amount from time to time allotted to the Sub-

grant, and the Subgrantee shall not be obligated to continue

carrying out the program under the Subgrant (including ac-

tions under the TERMINATION provision) or otherwise to incur

costs in excess of the amount allotted to the Subgrant un-

less and until the Management Entity has notified the Sub-

grantee in writing that.such allotted amount has been in-

creased and has specified in such notice an increased amount

constituting the total amount then allotted to the Subgrant.

To the extent the amount allotted exceeds the estimated

cost set forth in the Schedule, such estimated cost shall

be correspondingly increased. No notice, communication or

representation in any other form or from any person other

than the Management Entity shall affect the amount allotted

to the Subgrant. In the absence of the specified notice,

the Management Entity shall not be obligated to reimburse

the Subgrantee for any costs in excess of the total amount

then allotted to the Subgrant, whether those excess costs

were incurred during the course of the Subgrant or as result

of termination. When and to the extent that the amount al-

lotted to the Subgrant has been increased, any costs incurred

by the Subgrantee in excess of the amount previously allotted

shall be allowble to the same extent as if such costs had

been incurred after such increase in the amount allotted,

unless the Management Entity issues a termination or other

notice and directs that the increase is solely for the pur-

pose of covering termination or other specified expenses.
