Indirect cost rate for state and federal grant

city is taking 3%
opinion of DESE is that the school committee sets the rate, which we have set at 1% for a few years
Foley: looking for a ruling on this, continue with 1%, push conflict towards resolution
Monfredo: moves that we set 0%
Biancheria: why are we bringing up this up; aren't we awaiting a legal opinion?
Boone: DESE says that this is the responsibility of the School Committee. It is required that we do this for grant applications
Biancheria: doesn't actually set the rate, because the city will still take 3
Boone: need to do this for the grants
4-3 on 1%
