Budget Guidelines and Templates
OSP’s Budget Guidelines provide information on stipends, salaries, benefits and indirect costs. These templates for budgets and budget justifications can be used for proposal development:
Templates that include University Cost-Sharing/Matching: In some cases, a sponsor may mandate that the University cost-share/match a percentage of the total project’s costs. Once committed, this cost-share/match represents a binding commitment by the University and must be tracked and reported in its accounting system throughout the entire life of the project. At the proposal stage, all University cost-sharing must be approved by the authorized departmental fiscal agent.
Guidance on University cost-sharing/matching can be found in OSP’s Sponsored Programs Handbook. In no circumstances will previously committed match on an active award be permitted without prior approval from the sponsor. Cost-share/match on a previously submitted proposal should not be committed on a separate proposal until the outcome of the original proposal is determined.
