#381 special allocations internal base
Some grants and contracts have certain expenses that are not easily identifiable to the different work components within that program. This may include coordination activities, program managers, program supplies, etc. You may find that charging these types of costs to a specific program pool element and allocating them to the different work components within the grant/contract using an internal base is the most equitable basis of reflecting the costs under each component. An internal base consists of hours worked, personnel costs, or total direct costs. Software is available to do the allocation based on a user defined element matrix. A special Year-To-Date Cost Allocation Summary is produced to document the trail of the debits and credits resulting from the allocation. It may eliminate the common practice of arbitrarily expending program shared costs.
