Budget development and rates

To build budgets for proposals, the best practice is for PIs to either email grant managers with the required information or fill out the budget template themselves.

When building a proposal budget, keep in mind these important tips:

  • Project salary rate increases on the following schedule:
    • Annually on July 1 for classified staff and graduate students
    • Annually on September 1 for faculty and professional staff
    • Use 2% increase as estimate
  • Verify correct F&A rate is used
  • Prorate graduate student salary and tuition when necessary
