The Texas Education Agency has, in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Education (USDE), developed an indirect cost proposal to be used for the school districts and charter schools in Texas. The agency has been delegated the authority by the USDE to review indirect cost applications and to approve indirect cost rates for school districts and charter schools. To recover any indirect costs for the administration of federal grants, a school district or charter school must have an approved indirect cost rate. A new indirect cost rate must be obtained for every fiscal year.
