Budget preparation and the associated budget justification can be the most mystifying and challenging step for investigators. It is critical that a detailed budget is prepared at the proposal stage along with the sponsor budget form to identify potential cost sharing, avoid the surprise of disallowable expenses, and capture correct fringe rates and benefits costs, to name a few. But don't worry, we are here to help you with that!
The Analyst assigned to work with you will be able to collect some basic information from you then build a draft budget for your review, and continue to work with you to fine tune it. This information will then be transferred onto the sponsor's budget form.
