Developer fees are only permitted to be paid to private individuals, for-profit, and private non-profit entities. In the NSP program, grantees, subrecipients, and consortium members are not allowed to receive a "developer fee" for carrying out any NSP eligible activities. Additionally, a consortium member cannot establish a for-profit affiliate or subsidiary outside the consortium grantee structure to receive a "developer fee." An entity that may charge a "developer fee" cannot be any part of the grantee.
NSP definitions of developers, subrecipients, and contracts are available in the NSP Policy Alert: Guidance on Developers, Subrecipients, and Contractors - Implications of Using Different Entity Types to Carry out NSP-funded Activities.
