Could a PI list administrative staff as a direct cost?

Since Facilities and Administrative (F&A) rates include remuneration for administrative and support staffs, these charges are not typically allowable. However, if needed for a given PCORI project, then yes, applicants are encouraged to propose and justify such costs for consideration on a case-by-case basis.

If the intended staff performs duties in direct relation to PCORI’s awarded project and their effort can be clearly and exclusively attributed to the PCORI project supported by way of time or effort reporting, then the recipient institution may charge that portion of their time and effort as a direct cost. Please refer to the PCORI Cost Principles for more information.
