Target Audience

The Navigate: Budgeting Basics for Sponsored Projects course is recommended for newer research administrators:

  • with approximately one (1) year of on-the-job experience;
  • who have minimal experience working with budgets for sponsored research proposals; and
  • who are proficient using Microsoft Excel.
Note: Students who have previously attended the Navigate: Fundamentals course have already covered the concepts and materials included in Navigate: Budgeting Basics for Sponsored Projects.

Session Content

Based on class demonstrations and modeling, participants will apply basic techniques to build their own budgets and justifications, each with increasingly more complex elements and attributes. Participants will engage 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.

The course will include "laboratory" assistance and in-class debrief discussion. By the end of this course, participants will master the building of three to four basic budgets for externally sponsored projects. They will also receive a collection of job aids and templates to use as a reference for building similar budgets in their own positions.
