New Fringe Benefit Rates

New fringe benefit rates are effective July 1, 2016 for UW-Madison and UW-Extension. These rates will be used when charging the employer’s contribution to fringe benefits on all new and ongoing extramural projects. Rates are based on the actual costs of benefits paid during the fiscal year July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2015. The increases in the rates are attributable to an increase in the University’s contributions for health insurance and retirement costs. We appreciate your assistance in assuring that all extramural projects with an anticipated date of July 1, 2016 or later utilize the new rates.
