Apply for Navigate: Advanced Budgeting - Task-Based Budgets

Cost Fee: $75 per participant

Deadline: Monday, March 25, 2019


Seats are limited to 20 participants so application is required

The Navigate: Advanced Budgeting Selected Topics: Task-Based Budgets will include laboratory assistance and in-class debrief discussion. By the end of this course, learners will master the building of two moderately complex budgets and will keep the step-by-step documentation and Excel templates for use in developing similar budgets in their own positions. Budget attributes in this course include: 
  • National Institutes of Health (NIH) (2-year, $315K) and Department of Transportation (DoT) (multi-year, < $1M) budgets for sponsors with mixed effort/appointments in budgets including 12-month, U-Year, and pool (with SVH) appointments;
  • multiple methods of fringe rate calculation based on sponsor requirements and appointment types;
  • conversion of effort from percent (%) effort to loaded labor hour(s);
  • loaded labor rates included on a task-based, multi-year budget with a base budget period and option years; and,
  • simple cost sharing.
Additionally, participants will receive reinforcement and practice in multiple appointment types, including:
  • University-year (U-year)
  • 12-month
  • Graduate Student Research Assistants (GSRAs)
  • Temp Hourly
  • Building loaded labor hour budgets for task-based submissions
  • Orientation to nuances of Department of Defense (DoD) and Department of Transportation (DoT) submissions
  • Tips and tricks for participation from faculty in developing and planning for complex budgets
From class demonstrations and modeling, participants will then apply budget techniques to build their own budgets (including justifications), with more complex elements and attributes. Budgets will represent a variety of budget types and sponsors. The learner will participate in class walk-through demonstrations, discussion of budget-building and problem-solving strategies typical in the context of proposal submission, and then work through reinforcing budget development homework assignments.

Attendance at both sessions is mandatory. Completion of the course requires class attendance, completion of homework, and a review session.

Applications are due March 25, 2019! Class size is limited to 20 participants.
