23 CFR 1252.2 - Definitions.
(a) Fiscal year means the twelve months beginning each October 1, and ending the following September 30.
(b) Direct costs are those costs which can be identified specifically with a particular planning and administration or program activity. The salary of a data analyst on the State highway safety agency staff is an example of a direct cost attributable to P&A. The salary of an emergency medical technician course instructor is an example of direct cost attributable to a program activity.
(c) Indirect costs are those costs (1) incurred for a common or joint purpose benefiting more than one program activity and (2) not readily assignable to the program activity specifically benefited. For example, centralized support services such as personnel, procurement, and budgeting would be indirect costs.
(d) Planning and administration (P&A) costs are those direct and indirect costs that are attributable to the overall development and management of the Highway Safety Plan. Such costs could include salaries, related personnel benefits, travel expenses, and rental costs.
(e) Program management costs are those costs attributable to a program area (e.g., salary of an emergency medical services coordinator, the impact evaluation of an activity, or the travel expenses of a local traffic engineer).
(f) State highway safety agency is the agency directly responsible for coordinating the State's highway safety program authorized by 23 U.S.C. 402.
