Access the "Budget" in the project

In beneficiary grant projects, information about the Awarded and Reported Budget can be found in both the project details header and the Budget section of a project in Beneficiary module.

The Awarded Budget represents the most recent grant amount awarded by the National Agency. The Reported Budget represents the actual amounts used in the project, calculated based on information provided in project sections such as mobility activities, participation, and events.

In the Budget screen, the column % Reported/Awarded indicates the percentage of the awarded budget that has been used, allowing for monitoring of expenditure for each relevant budget item.

The names of the budget may vary depending on the action type, as follows:

  • Awarded Budget: Approved budget by National Agency
  • Reported Budget: Current budget
  • % Reported/Awarded: % Current/Approved
