A Budget Primer and Worksheets for Proposal Writers.
Daniels, Craig E.
The workbook for proposal writers treats budget writing as an integral part of the proposal-writing process rather than an afterthought. Working out the budget implications of the proposal as the idea evolves is encouraged. The workbook is designed to assist in developing budgets for federal grant programs. It consists of an introductory section discussing a few basic budget concepts, budget worksheets and a discussion of them, and sample budget forms and budgets for some typical grant programs. Worksheets are intended for reproduction and use. The budget concepts discussed include direct and indirect costs, eligible and ineligible requests, and cost sharing and matching funds. Worksheet elements presented include wages and salaries, fringe benefits, contract services and consultants, space and equipment costs, consumable supplies and materials, and other expenses. Sample budget forms include those for the National Science Foundation and the Department of Health, Education and Welfare (Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education and Public Health Service as well as the standard HEW form).
