Budget Information

  1. Is there a way to include formulas in the budget form so that as the numbers are added they automatically generate totals as opposed to manually entering them?

  2. Is it possible for the budget module in RAPSS to link the fringe rate to the SF424 so that it will automatically calculate the fringe for you?

  3. Is it possible for the cognizant agency and the indirect costs rate agreement date to be filled in for you? Also, can the budget data entered in the Smart Form be generated on the SF424? Currently I am manually entering in all the fields and I am not able to export to a spreadsheet?


  1. Not at this time. While this information is currently being entered in the SF424, you will still need to include your proposal budget as a separate document. The budget should be uploaded into the “Attachments” section of the Funding Proposal workspace.

  2. The second phase of the RAPSS project will incorporate the preparation of the budget as well as the mapping of the budget to the SF424 forms. This is not anticipated to occur until late-spring or early summer of 2016.
