Regarding the calculation of costs, where have the travel costs to be put?
Posted by Dora Farmaki on 19 July 2010 09:48 AM

The travel costs (for workshops, meetings, etc. within the frame of the project) have to be put under "other direct costs". If the client uses a flat rate model it is correct to calculate the indirect costs of these direct costs. However, if the client uses the "actual indirect costs" method for calculating the indirect costs, the client has to use the method "normally applied within the organisation" (which means for 99% of the cases that indirect costs are only calculated for personnel costs).

If the travel costs occur within the transnational access (for the user groups) they must be put under "Access costs" in "other direct costs".
