Assistance in the development of budgets to be included in proposal
submissions will be provided by the SPAR Director and you are
encouraged to discuss your budget requirements with the Director
prior to submitting the proposal for approval.
University Policy and procedures will be followed in all grant
Employer Contributions: All budgets that provide for employee
compensation must include fringe benefits related to the salaries
based upon the classification of employee. To determine the
correct percentage, or actual cost, to be included, see the chart
Employer Contributions on this web site.
Indirect Cost Recovery: Budgets must also consider the
application of Indirect Cost Recovery or Facilities and
Administrative Cost allowances. The University receives an
approved rate to be used in preparing the budget, unless the grant
guidelines specifically do not allow administrative cost recoveries
or specify a lower rate. See the chart
and Administrative Costs for Winthrop's negotiated Rate.
Cash or In-Kind Match: Many of the grant programs
require the University to provide funds or services to match those
to be awarded by the Sponsor. It is the responsibility of the
Principal Investigator to ensure that matching funds are available
to support the program, prior to submission of the grant. All
such matching requirements should be noted on the
Grant Routing and Authorization Form and approved by the
Department Head and Dean.
