Other Required Documents for Proposals

All Progress Reports with Detailed Budgets must be routed for UF Approvals using UFIRST.

  • All progress reports with detailed budgets should be entered into UFIRST Proposals and routed through the appropriate units for approval (Proposal type continuation).  This generally includes all NIH P, T, and U award as well as any other progress reports requiring detailed budgets for future year(s).
  • Submission of detailed budgets often differ from the original proposal and can include cost shared effort and modifications to the original commitments, they require a full review by the appropriate fiscal approvers of each unit.
  • F&A is fixed for the life of an award. If the progress report being submitted is part of the the original period of performance the originally awarded F&A rate remains.
