About this Event

Representatives from the University of Maryland are visiting this week to talk about US Federal Funding. This is one of several key workshops delivered at the University of Melbourne for researchers, research administrators and other staff.

Workshop Overview: Developing a clear and reasonable budget is a vital piece of the proposal process. The regulations tell us the budget should be the financial expression of the statement of work. The ability to build a budget that directly ties to the work being performed enhances the chances of being funded by the sponsor and protects us in the case of an audit. Understanding how to work with PIs to craft a sound, reasonable budget and budget justification is essential to our roles as research administrators.

Learning Objectives: Using the Uniform Guidance as the basis for our discussion, this session will explore the foundations of budget building. We will discuss allowability, allocability, and reasonableness; administrative and clerical salary issues; determination of subrecipient, vendor, or consultant status; and many more issues surrounding budgeting, as well as crafting a solid budget justification. This session should lay the groundwork for research administrators to successfully and confidently collaborate with the PI to build a sound budget that reflects the scope of work.

Experience Level / Target Audience: No experience of US funding agencies required. We encourage active participation, so please come with questions!

Workshop presenter: Rebecca Hunsaker, Director, Research Administration, College of Behavioral & Social Sciences, University of Maryland, USA.

RSVP before Wednesday 4th September. Book early as numbers are limited. However, if you miss out, please note this session will be recorded.

Morning tea will be provided.
