The approvals required for budget changes to existing awards are determined by the terms and conditions of the award. Many sponsors allow rebudgeting without prior approval while others require approval when rebudgeting into or out of a spending category exceed a specified percentage of the award amount.
If rebudgeting is necessary, please send a request to the Grant and Contract Accounting Office. The appropriate GCA officer will review the request to determine if it is allowable, based on sponsor regulations or contractual agreements in the award documents. If prior sponsor approval is required, GCA will forward the request to Sponsored Programs Administration. If sponsor approval is not required, GCA will complete the budget transfer and send notification to the department.
No Cost Extensions
If additional time is needed to complete a sponsored project without additional funding, a no cost extension can be requested from Sponsored Programs Administration. See the following link for more information on requesting a no cost extension.
