The budget is the proposal expressed in terms of the dollars that you require to bring your project to a successful conclusion. It indicates the total expenses of the project as you have carefully anticipated them. It is important to provide a reasonable budget for your project that provides accurate cost estimates that tie to your project plan and activities.

It is important to engage with ORDA and your department head or school director about the budget early in the process:

  •  Work with the ORDA Project Officer to develop a budget, several iterations will be required.
  •  Notify your department head of intention to submit and discuss any need for cost sharing or release time - share your DRAFT budget
  •  Finish the budget and budget justification narrative before getting official internal approvals especially regarding cost-sharing
