Before Preparing Your Proposal Budget
Always read the guidelines of the sponsoring agency and review the forms and formatting requirements for the budget.
Familiarize yourself with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) policies for proposal budgets as well. All grants, contracts and other types of awards must comply with the principles in the OMB Circular "Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards." (See Part 200-Uniform Administrative Requirements for full text.)
