Budget Development

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 transactions. 

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 Facilities 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.
