Interesting perspectives on burden rate.
My question is, should the back office operations cost also be a part of the burden rate?
Normally I would say no – however..
Our business model is to manage the back office operations for staffing firms.
We do this defining our client's back office process according to our standardized tasks.
The result is that we charge only for tasks we complete and each task can be allocated to each individual billable worker.
Resulting in a clear back office/admin cost per billable worker

Excellent replies! Thank you.
we currently have one standard burden rate across all states. Are you averaging it across states or do you use a specific rate per state?
historically, we add an additional per hour cost in the event the contractor elects benefits - is it common to just average out the cost and apply to the burden rate for all contractors?
