2. In regard to paragraph 1(f) above, the Minister may request at any time that the Proponent provide satisfactory evidence to demonstrate that Eligible Costs have been paid.

3. Within one hundred and twenty (120) days of the submission of the final claim, the Proponent shall submit an itemized statement certified by the Proponent’s chief financial officer attesting to the Eligible Costs for the entire Project having been incurred and paid.

B - TPC PROJECT COST PRINCIPLES

1. GENERAL PRINCIPLE

The total Eligible Costs of the Project shall be the sum of the applicable direct and indirect costs which are, or are to be reasonably and properly incurred and/or allocated, in the performance of the Project, less any applicable credits. These costs shall be determined in accordance with the Proponent’s cost accounting system as accepted by the Minister and applied consistently over time.

2. DEFINITION OF REASONABLE COST

(1)
A cost is reasonable if, in nature and amount, it does not exceed that which would be incurred by an ordinary prudent person in the conduct of a competitive business.
(2)
In determining the reasonableness of a particular cost, consideration shall be given to:
(a)
whether the cost is of a type generally recognized as normal and necessary for the conduct of the Proponent's business or performance of the Project;
(b)
the restraints and requirements by such factors as generally accepted sound business practices, arm's length bargaining, federal, provincial and local laws and regulations, and Agreement terms;
(c)
the action that prudent business persons would take in the circumstances, considering their responsibilities to the owners of the business, their employees, customers, the Government and public at large;
(d)
significant deviations from the established practices of the Proponent which may unjustifiably increase the Eligible Costs; and
(e)
the specifications, delivery schedule and quality requirements of the particular project as they affect costs.

3. DIRECT COSTS

There are three categories of direct costs:

(a)
Direct Material Cost meaning the cost of materials which can be specifically identified and measured as having been used or to be used for the performance of the Project and which are so identified and measured consistently by the Proponent's cost accounting system as accepted by the Minister.
(i.)
These materials may include, in addition to materials purchased solely for the Project and processed by the Proponent, or obtained from subcontractors, any other materials issued from the Proponent's general stocks.
(ii.)
Materials purchased solely for the Project or subcontracts shall be charged to the Project at the net laid down cost to the Proponent before cash discounts for prompt payment.
(iii.)
Materials issued from the Proponent’s general stocks shall be charged to the Project in accordance with the method as used consistently by the Proponent in pricing material inventories.
(b)
Direct Labour Cost meaning that portion of gross wages or salaries incurred for activities which can be specifically identified and measured as having been performed or to be performed on the Project and which is so identified and measured consistently by the Proponent’s cost accounting system as accepted by the Minister.
(c)
Other Direct Costs meaning those applicable costs, not falling within the categories of direct material or direct labour, but which can be specifically identified and measured as having been incurred or to be incurred in performance of Project activities and which are so identified and measured consistently by the Proponent’s costing system as accepted by the Minister.

4. INDIRECT COSTS

(1)
Indirect Costs (overhead) meaning those costs which, though necessarily having been incurred during the period of the performance of the Project activities for the conduct of the Proponent’s business in general, cannot be identified and measured as directly applicable to the Project.
(2)
These Indirect Costs may include, but are not necessarily restricted to, such items as:
(a)
indirect materials and supplies (*);
(b)
indirect labour;
(c)
fringe benefits (the Proponent’s contribution only);
(d)
service expenses: expenses of a general nature such as power, heat, light, operation and maintenance of general assets and facilities;
(e)
fixed/period charges: recurring charges such as property taxes, rentals and reasonable provision for depreciation;
(f)
general and administrative expenses: including remuneration of executive and corporate officers, office wages and salaries and expenses such as stationery, office supplies, postage and other necessary administration and management expenses;
(g)
selling and marketing expenses associated with the products or services being acquired under the Agreement;
(h)
general research and development expenses as considered applicable by the Minister.

5. ALLOCATION OF INDIRECT COSTS

Indirect costs shall be accumulated in appropriate indirect cost pools, reflecting the Proponent’s organizational or operational lines and these pools subsequently allocated to the Project or contracts, in accordance with the following two principles:

(a)
the costs included in a particular indirect cost pool should have a similarity of relationship with the Project or contracts, as applicable, to which that indirect cost pool is subsequently distributed; further, the costs included in an indirect cost pool should be similar enough in their relationship to each other that the allocation of the total costs in the pool provides a result which would be similar to that achieved if each cost within that pool were separately distributed;
(b)
the allocation basis for each indirect cost pool should reflect, as far as possible, the causal relationship of the pooled costs to the Project to which these costs are distributed.

6. CREDITS

The applicable portion of any income, rebate, allowance, or any other credit relating to any applicable direct or indirect costs, received by or accruing to the Proponent, shall be credited to the Eligible Costs.

7. NON-APPLICABLE COSTS

Notwithstanding that the following costs may have been or may be reasonably and properly incurred by the Proponent during the performance of Project activities, they are considered non-applicable costs to the Project:

(a)
allowance for interest on invested capital, bonds, debentures, bank or other loans together with related bond discounts and finance charges;
(b)
legal, accounting and consulting fees in connection with financial reorganization, security issues, capital stock issues, obtaining of patents and licenses and prosecution of claims against the Minister;
(c)
losses on investments, bad debts and expenses for the collection thereof;
(d)
losses on other projects or contracts;
(e)
federal and provincial income taxes, excess profit taxes or surtaxes and/or special expenses in connection therewith;

(k)
expenses and depreciation of excess facilities;
(l)
unreasonable compensation for officers and employees;

advertising, except reasonable advertising of an industrial or institutional character placed in trade, technical or professional journals for the dissemination of information for the industry or institution;
(o)
entertainment expenses;
(p)
donations except those to charities registered under the Income Tax Act;
(q)
dues and other memberships other than regular trade and professional associations;
(r)
fees, extraordinary or abnormal for professional advice in regard to technical, administrative or accounting matters, unless approval from the Minister is obtained.

ADDENDUM TO TPC PROJECT COST PRINCIPLES

A Intellectual Property Protection

Notwithstanding section 7(b) above, legal, accounting and consulting fees in connection with the obtaining of patents and statutory protection of other elements of the Intellectual Property are Eligible Costs.

Insert the following where Special Purpose Equipment is involved

B Special Purpose Equipment

For Eligible Costs in respect to Special Purpose Equipment, see the Schedule entitled Special Purpose Equipment.

Insert the following where the TPC Overhead Proxy is involved

SR&ED Method of Calculating Labour and Overhead Allowance

Notwithstanding the provisions on Direct Labour Costs and Indirect Costs described above, the Parties hereby confirm that the Canada Revenue Agency policy on Scientific Research and Experimental Development has been chosen by the Proponent as a proxy for Direct Labour Costs and overhead calculations for this Project, and accordingly, the following guide shall apply.

TPC Overhead Proxy

Calculating the Prescribed Proxy Amount for Eligible Overhead Expenditures, A Summary of CRA T4088(E) Rev.03 Guide to Form T661 - Claiming Scientific Research and Experimental Development Expenditures http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/E/pub/tg/t4088/README.html. This summary has been prepared to outline the major elements of calculating the prescribed proxy amount (PPA). In case of disagreement between this summary and the SR&ED rules, SR&ED will apply.

In lieu of standard PWGSC direct labour and overhead negotiations, TPC clients may choose to follow the SR&ED rules. Under this method, rather than specifically identifying and allocating incremental overhead expenditures to the Project, a PPA for eligible overhead costs may be calculated based on a fixed percentage of the salaries or wages, or portion thereof, of the employees directly engaged in the Project. The base will include wages/salaries as well as normal sick and vacation leave and statutory holidays. It will not include expenditures for taxable benefits, as well as remuneration based on profits and bonuses, or related benefits (the employer’s share of EI , CPP or QPP, WCB or CSST , employee pension and medical plans).

The current SR&ED PPA rate is 65% of the base.

The PPA will cover overhead expenditures such as:

Note, there are rules that limit the amount of wage/salary costs of specified employees that can be included in the base. For year 2002, the maximum amount is $97,750 per specified employee. Specified employees are those employees who do not deal at arm’s length with the employer or who own directly or indirectly, at any time during the year, 10% or more of the issued shares of any capital stock of the employer or of any corporation related to the employer.

The following table highlights the types of activity that should be included in calculating the base as well as applicable limits.

Calculating the Prescribed Proxy Amount Base

Include the Portion of Wages/Salaries for Time spent on the Project of: Do Not Include:
Employees directly engaged in the Project, based on such tasks as:

  • preparing equipment and materials for experiments, tests and analysis (but not for maintaining equipment);
  • experimenting, testing and analysing;
  • collecting data for experimentation and analysis; and,
  • directing the course of the ongoing Project activities being claimed for the year.

Other employees’ time is also considered to be directly engaged in the Project to the extent the following tasks are required as part of the SOW:

  • recording measurements, making calculations and preparing charts and graphs;
  • conducting statistical surveys and interviews;
  • preparing computer programs; and,
  • working in areas of engineering or design, operations research, mathematical analysis and psychological research.

Supervisors or managers time spent directly involved in the technical aspects of the Project.

Note: employees who spend all or substantially all of their time (90%) on SOW activities are considered to spend all of their time on the Project.

Employees providing a service to Project staff including clerks, secretaries and receptionists engaged in activities in such areas as accounting, payroll, finance, legal, shipping, inventory control, maintenance and word processing.

Time managers and supervisors spend on the non technical management aspects of activities such as long-term decision making, contract administration and other decision-making functions that do not directly influence the Project activities.

Usually, do not include work performed beyond the first-line supervision level.

For a specified employee, the maximum amount of salary that can be included in the base is limited to 75% of salary/wage costs, regardless of the share of time working on the Project exceeds this amount. This amount is further restricted, to be the lessor of the prior calculation or the following formula:

2.5 times the Maximum Pensionable Earnings (for CPP purposes, $39,100 for year 2002) times the number of days in the taxation year that the person is employed by the client divided by 365.

The intent of this schedule is to identify the number of Person Years, (PYs), expended on Project related activities during any one year of the duration of the Agreement, according to category of employment. Both part-time and full-time employees should be claimed, as employment of all types represents a Project benefit. A single PY unit can be one person working full-time for one year, or any number of persons working an aggregate of 1800-2000 hours between them for the whole year.

1. Data is to be provided based on a 52-week calendar year and should be expressed in PY units.

2. Direct PYs are to be counted. The term direct PYs relates to the work performed in Canada by employees of the proponent. Only those direct PYs, which result from the Project, are to be counted. Work performed outside of Canada by Canadian employees is not to be included except for eligible activities performed as part of the Statement of Work during the Work Phase. Reported PYs may be performed by existing staff or by new hires.

3. Indirect PYs refer to work performed in Canada as a result of the Project by employees who are not employed by the Proponent, and normally at a location other than the Proponent's facility. Apart from the following two exceptions, indirect PYs are not to be included in the PY count:

A.
Sub-contracted PYs in the Work phase of R&D/innovation projects are included in the PY count, provided that the related activity is explicitly set out in the Statement of Work of the Contribution Agreement.
B.
Benefit phase production PYs of related entities to the Proponent are included in the PY count, provided that the Contribution Agreement explicitly includes PY reporting requirements on the parties concerned and the Proponent provides the Minister access to the related facilities for monitoring purposes.

Instructions:

Part 1 - Work Phase: Report in this part only if at any time during the immediately preceding calendar year, the Project was in the Work Phase. Reporting during the Work Phase requires a yearly breakdown by category of employment. Report on Part 1, by completing the non-shaded cells for each category of employment.

Part 2 - Benefits Phase: All Proponents must report in the Benefits Phase part of Form TPC-2. Reporting during the Benefits Phase requires the average number of PYs during this Phase, by category of employment. Report on Part 2, by completing the non-shaded cells of Column D, and, if at anytime in the immediately preceding calendar year the Project was in the Benefits Phase, Column B as well.

Example:

The Benefits Phase is expected to last 9 years and “General Production” PYs are expected to be 8 per year in the first 3 years, 5 per year in the next 3 years and 2 per year in the last 3 years. The average PYs reported in column D for “General Production” would be 5. [(3x8)+(3x5)+(3x2)]/9=5 However, if the Proponent is in the 4th year of the Benefits Phase, and the actual PYs for the first 3 years were 11 per year, the average PYs reported in column D for “General Production” would be 6. [(3x11)+(3x5)+(3x2)]/9=6

This form estimates all costs incurred in Canada and investment that may be leveraged by TPC funds. These include:

ELIGIBLE SUPPORTED COSTS: Those costs incurred by the Proponent and towards which TPC provides financial support.

OTHER PROJECT RELATED COSTS (INCLUDING POST WORK PHASE INVESTMENT): Other non-recurring costs incurred in Canada that are directly related to the Project. This would include items such as cost overruns but would not include costs prior to the date indicated in Article 4.2 of the Contribution Agreement. For example, a project may include capital costs (for land and building) that are not eligible for TPC support, but which the company will incur directly related to the Project.

Post work phase investment refers to any additional non-recurring, post work phase, Project related investment in Canada by the Proponent (e.g. non-recurring costs related to production facilities, marketing and distribution activities, etc.). For example, the building of new production lines, creation of a new marketing team, or establishment of a new distribution/line network for the resulting product/technology.

OTHER INVESTMENTS: Other investment unrelated to the specific Project but included in the contractual commitments made by the Proponent. For example, a company may commit to construction of a building as a condition of receiving a TPC investment, although the building is not directly part of the Project.

Instructions:

Please complete the non-shaded cells of column (B) only in the table for each type of investment, as defined above, by providing actual figures for the immediately preceding year and estimates for the remaining term. Please note this form reports on a government fiscal year basis of April 1 to March 31.

SCHEDULE 7 - SPECIAL PURPOSE EQUIPMENT

1. Definition

“Special Purpose Equipment” means

-equipment, including ancillary systems, instrumentation, or special test equipment that is purchased, leased, manufactured or otherwise acquired for the purposes of the Project, the item cost of which exceeds $250,000., excluding jigs, tools, dies and fixtures; and

-prototypes or pilot plants that are designed and built by the Proponent to demonstrate the technology to be commercialized.

2. Treatment of Special Purpose Equipment

(a) Disposal

Except in the situation described in section (b) below, if the Proponent transfers to commercial production, transfers outside of Canada, sells, leases or otherwise disposes of any Special Purpose Equipment, the Minister will require the Proponent to repay the greater of an amount equal to that of

(i)
multiplying the proceeds of disposition of the Special Purpose Equipment by the ratio of the total amount of the contribution paid by the Minister to the total amount paid by the Proponent for Eligible Costs; and
(ii)
multiplying the fair market value of the Special Purpose Equipment on the date of the transfer to commercial production, transfer outside of Canada, sale, lease or other disposition by the ratio of the total amount of the contribution paid by the Minister to the total amount paid by the Proponent for Eligible Costs;

but in no event shall the amount payable exceed the amount paid by the Minister to the Proponent under this Agreement.

The Proponent shall make such repayment within 30 days of the transfer to commercial production, transfer outside of Canada, sale, lease, or other disposition of the Special Purpose Equipment.

(b) Repayment on Special Purpose Equipment

If the estimated cost as set out in the Statement of Work of all of the items of Special Purpose Equipment, other than prototypes and pilot plants, is 30% or less of the total estimated Eligible Costs, the Proponent will not be obligated to pay the Minister for those items which are transferred by the Proponent to commercial production in Canada.

3. Costing Principles

(a)
To be an Eligible Cost, the Special Purpose Equipment must be necessary for the performance of the Project, be described in sufficient detail herein so as to be readily identifiable, and the relevant cost be specified in the Special Purpose Equipment Form attached.
(b)
If the Special Purpose Equipment is to be modified or integrated by the Proponent during the Project, the costs related thereto will be eligible only if specifically identified in the Statement of Work in Schedule 2.
(c)
Eligible Costs for Special Purpose Equipment will be the net laid down cost to the Proponent, after deducting trade discounts and cash discounts for prompt payment.
(d)
Where applicable, periodic payments under a capital lease are Eligible Costs, to a maximum equal to the price of the Special Purpose Equipment, if it were purchased at the commencement of the lease period; all interest and carrying charges are to be excluded. For operating leases, the Eligible Cost is the actual lease payments incurred during the performance of the Project.
(e)
Labor and material costs required in the modification or adaptation of the Special Purpose Equipment, for the purposes of the Project, are eligible costs.
(f)
Unless such is otherwise allowed in the Statement of Work, costs of construction or alteration of plant facilities to accommodate the Special Purpose Equipment or any other item of machinery and equipment, and any profit, fees, general and administrative overhead expenses related thereto, are not eligible.
