Fixed F&A Rate Agreement for FY2018

As of today, Kuali Coeus (KC) has been updated with these new rates (effective July 1st, 2017). The FY18 fixed F&A rates will be updated in SAP in mid-July, after FY17 costing sheets have completed and will be reflected on your summary statements by the end of the month.
