Budget Development Resource Information

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.

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.

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.
