The University of Florida agreed to pay $19.875 million to settle allegations the university improperly charged the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for salary and administrative costs on hundreds of federal grants.

The government also contended the university charged for impermissible administrative costs for equipment and supplies and inflated costs charged to the grants. DOJ
