In your project, click on Budget in the Content menu. The Budget screen is displayed.
The Budget screen shows the list of all project costs broken down per cost type.
The screen is divided as follows:
On the right side, there are 3 columns for each budget item:
All grant amounts are read-only, and cannot be changed directly. They are calculated based on information you have provided either in this screen (for Project Costs and Coach Costs) or in the Exceptional Costs section of the project.
The Export PDF function is currently disabled. It will be available in a future release and will allow you to download the budget as a PDF file.
The Total project budget is displayed at the top of the budget screen. It enables you to have a quick overview of the total approved budget compared to the total current declared budget, as well as the percentage of the approved budget used at project level.
If the amount of the Current Budget is higher than the amount approved by the NA for the same budget item or for the total project budget, a warning message is displayed. This does not prevent you from submitting the beneficiary report, as it is only for information purposes.
Even though you are able to submit a declared budget greater than the Budget Approved by the NA, the final amount approved by the National Agency during the process of validating the declared budget will never be higher than the latest approved amount by the National Agency in the Grant Agreement or in the last amendment, respectively.
The Project Costs grant is awarded to you for the entire duration of the project (in months), specified in the grant agreement. This value is set by default in the Number of months field. In our example, the duration of the project is of 6 months.
If you do not require a grant, type 0 (zero) in the field. The Current Budget and %Current Approved fields are updated accordingly, both for the project costs and for the totals at project level.
If needed, you can revert to the number of months corresponding to the full duration of the project. Other values are not allowed.
You can select the number of coaching days for which you require a coach grant (maximum 12 days).
Under Coach Costs type the Number of days (between 0 and 12). The Current Budget and %Current Approved fields are updated accordingly, both for the coaching costs and for the totals at project level.
If the specified value is higher than the maximum allowed, a warning message is displayed.
