Budget Development

The Research Institute assists faculty and staff with preparing proposal budgets by providing current salaries, wages, fringe benefits, F&A costs, yearly escalation, and other cost rates.

Proposal budgets must be authorized before submission. The grant and contract specialist assigned to your department, division, or college can assist you in preparing the required proposal Budget Authorization Form. Your grant and contract specialist can also help you complete any budget forms required by your particular funding sponsor or program solicitation.

Many proposals also require a budget justification or budget narrative in addition to a budget summary. Your budget justification should include a breakdown of individual elements of cost, by rate and unit quantity where appropriate, as well as a written description of how each proposed cost will benefit the project.
