Apply for Navigate: Advanced Budgeting - Task-Based Budgets

Cost Fee: $75 per participant

Deadline: Monday, November 19, 2018

Class size is limited. Application required. 

Both Navigate: Advanced Budgeting Selected Topics courses are recommended for research administrators:
  • with approximately two (2) or more years of on-the-job experience;
  • who have been exposed to and regularly produce basic budgets for sponsored research proposals;
  • are familiar with various appointment types used in sponsored project budgets, including faculty (U-year and 12-month), staff, and graduate students; and
  • are familiar with how to calculate common budget elements, including indirect costs and modified total direct costs (MTDC).

The Navigate: Advanced Budgeting Selected Topics - Task-Based Budgets will include hands-on assistance and an in-class debrief discussion. By the end of this course, participants will master the building of two moderately complex budgets and will keep the 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) and Department of Transportation (DoT) budgets for sponsors with mixed effort/appointments including 12-month, U-Year, and pool appointments;
  • multiple methods of fringe rate calculation based on sponsor requirements and appointment types;
  • conversion of effort from percent effort to loaded labor hours;
  • 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. 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.

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