In line with fEC guidelines, the University has to implement revised full economic cost (fEC) rates from 1 February each year. Therefore, please be advised that the University fEC rates will change on 1 February 2011. pFACT will not be available on the morning of Tuesday 1 February (8am to 12noon) as during this time the new rates will be updated. The new rates are available at the Research Office website Please note that this link is restricted to Cambridge staff only and you need to use your Raven access to view it.

  • Effect on Applications - From 1 February 2011, all applications should be revised so that they use these new figures (note that some project proposals may show zero costs on their summary page). To ensure your application uses the new figures, click the “Recalculate” button on the summary page. 
  • Major Research Facilities - Some of the existing Major Research Facilities (MRF) rates will be revised on 1 February 2011, which means that after this date, all applications that include MRFs will need to be updated with these new figures. To incorporate the updated rates, the Research Office will make adjustments to applications as required. Note that no new rates are being added to pFACT at this time.   

For queries relating to the rate change please contact your School Team at the Research Office
