The cost of research includes both direct and indirect costs. Indirect costs include maintaining the research space and libraries; cost of utilities for that space; management and administration of research, finances, regulatory requirements and compliance; and liability insurance amongst other costs. It is difficult to assign these indirect costs to specific projects since the costs are shared across projects.
The Research Support Fund (RSF) replaced the Indirect Cost Program (ICP) in April 2015. The transition of the Indirect Costs Program to the Research Support Fund is in response to the Economic Action Plan 2013, in which the government committed to examining the Indirect Costs Program, in consultation with the postsecondary sector, to ensure that the program was meeting its objective of reinforcing excellence in postsecondary research.
The Research Support Fund (RSF) is a Government of Canada funding program to assist Canadian post-secondary institutions in offsetting some of the indirect costs involved in administering the research funded by the three granting agencies:
The funds provided are to assist with expenses in five major categories: 1) Research Facilities, 2) Management & Administration, 3) Research Resources, 4) Regulatory Requirements and 5) Intellectual Property. RSF grants are allocated annually based on a 3-year rolling average of an institution’s Tri-Agency revenue.

The value of Nipissing University’s Indirect Costs allocation varies from year to year and is based on a percentage of the university’s total funding received from the Federal Granting Agencies; SSHRC, NSERC and CIHR. The allocation is calculated using a three-year rolling average formula. For example, the 2013-2014 allocation is calculated by using the average of the 2010-2011, 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 Federal funding awards for Nipissing University. The funds must be used between the period of April 1 and March 31 of every year. No carryover or deferral of funds is permitted.
The Research Support Fund is important to Nipissing University as it provides base level support for research activities conducted at the university. The following are examples of how funds from the program are used:
The institutional objectives may change from year to year depending on the expected use of the Research Support Fund.
