Proposal Budget Categories

The Berkeley Law Contracts/Grants Specialist understands how to build realistic proposal budgets based on project costs described by the Principal Investigator. A carefully-crafted proposal budget provides an actionable award spending strategy, simplifies monthly award financial reporting by the Specialist, streamlines Effort Reporting certifications, and minimizes or eliminates rework to process payroll expense transfers and/or cost redistributions during an award's activity period.
