5. Why is my LEA’s Indirect Cost Rate set at zero on the budget page?

If a zero is indicated as the Indirect Cost Rate (ICR) either the entity did not request that the ADE calculate a yearly rate (on the most recent AFR), did not submit the required documentation, did not submit a copy of the letter of Indirect Cost from their cognizant agency, or was not approved for an ICR for that fiscal year. All entities are encouraged to apply for a yearly rate.
