I think what's more important is to do what makes the most sense and
provides the most value to the PSF. If using the uni allows you can
accomplish more, then indirect costs are fine.
The PSF isn't solely focused on cost, but rather the value of what you
will produce. Of course, the total requested amount must be lower
than amount the PSF has available for grants. :-)
PS. I'm not on the grants committee, but I'm treasurer of the PSF.
