In response to Recommendation 4.27 of the May 2006 Auditor General Report on the CFP, direct and indirect costs are defined as follows:

  1. Direct Costs: represent those reimbursed by CFP to its partners for services/activities provided in support of the Program and agreed upon through a Memorandum of Agreement.
  2. Indirect Costs: certain costs of the CFP incurred by federal partners that are not reimbursed by CFP (see Auditor General Report - Definitions). Indirect costs can be sub-divided into two categories: those costs incurred and not reimbursed by the Program. An example would be collective bargaining salary increases that are passed on to departments by Treasury Board or, overhead costs for ministerial or infrastructure support. Secondly, indirect costs can be those that are received without charge such as accommodation and employee benefits to, for example, the Public Service Dental Plan.
