Use of the Budget Template is required by the campus community to develop and submit budgets consistent with the University’s currently negotiated rates. Use of the OSP Budget Template greatly reduces common arithmetic errors often encountered with other budget tools.
The budget template presents major cost categories used in the majority of federal research grant applications including NSF and NIH. This worksheet also presents important information about key personnel and their committed effort to the project.
The Budget Template is an Excel file with multiple tabs formatted for conformance with various federal sponsor requirements including NIH Modular Budgets, SF424, ED524 and the file copy budget.
