If you are budgeting employee salaries to be paid from a sponsored project (grant), you must also budget a proportionate amount for fringe benefits.

Due to the increasing costs of employer paid benefits, the recommended fringe benefit rates change from time to time. To calculate the exact percentage/amount of fringe benefits needed for an NDPERS or TIAA-CREF position, please use the EXCEL spreadsheets located here (also available on the NDSU Human Resources/Payroll website):
