    Pre-Award Financial Planning

    Considering what you want to accomplish, think about what’s needed to get there.

    • What’s the goal of the project? 
    • What activities will take place to reach that goal? 
    • What will be needed to conduct those activities? 
      • Who will be involved? 
      • When will the project take place? 
      • Where will activities occur?

    It’s critical to submit a comprehensive budget that accurately estimates anticipated expense. This will be a key indicator to the sponsoring agency that we are knowledgeable and prepared to conduct the proposed project.

    The Manager of Sponsored and Restricted Funds will work with you and the Director of Sponsored Programs to think through every aspect of your budget.
