RE-BUDGETING

These funds are to be used only for the purposes stated in the proposal and budget. It is understood that these funds will be used for such purposes substantially in accordance with the approved budget. It is also understood that no substantial variances, including the time of expenditures, will be made from the approved budget without the Office of Research and Graduate Studies’ (ORGS) prior approval in writing.

In general, FERA recipients are allowed a certain degree of latitude to re-budget within and between budget categories to meet unanticipated needs and to make other types of post-award changes. Written approval is required for budget modifications. Recipients shall immediately notify the Sponsored Projects Coordinator of developments that have a significant impact on the award-supported activities. Also, notification shall be given in the case of problems, delays, or adverse conditions which materially impair the ability to meet the objectives of the award. This notification shall include a statement of action taken or contemplated, and any assistance needed to resolve the situation.

Budget Modifications must be submitted using the ORGS approved budget template.
