Grant Runner Sponsor Budget Map

0

Overview

The Sponsor Budget Map page shows where the expenses from your connected SAGE Budget will flow to on the RR Detailed Budget form.

A link to the Sponsor Budget Map page will appear on the left navigation menu once you connect your SAGE Budget to your Grant Runner application and the RR Detailed Budget form is either mandatory for your opportunity, or you have selected it.

You may not need to use the Sponsor Budget Map page unless you have expenses that are not mapped to default fields on the RR Detailed Budget form, or you need to adjust the defaults. A red exclamation “validation icon” will display if you need to complete any mappings.

Note: The Sponsor Budget Map page does not show dollar amounts. It shows you how the various expenses on your budget are categorized for the RR Detailed Budget form. For some expenses, you can use the Sponsor Budget Map to change where and how your data displays on the RR Detailed Budget form.

Data Synchronization

After the initial connection of your SAGE Budget and Grant Runner application, any data changes you make on your SAGE Budget will be synchronized with both the RR Detailed Budget form and Sponsor Budget Map page. Any changes you make on the Sponsor Budget Map page will be reflected on the RR Detailed Budget form when you view it.

Your data changes will also be reflected in the PDF generated when you select View Grant Runner forms (PDF) on the left navigation menu.

Using the Sponsor Budget Map

The Sponsor Budget Map page will initially show where the SAGE Budget expenses will appear, by default, on the RR Detailed Budget. Where editable, you can choose to shift those expenses to a different category on the RR Detailed Budget. You can also specify the order of the personnel entries for Section A. Senior/Key Persons.

The Map page includes a link to your budget, just above the first section, that displays the budget number and title. For example: B88888 GENE LAB PROJECT.

link to budget highlighted

Below the link, there is a section for each expense type (object code) on your connected SAGE Budget. By default, the sections are all collapsed when you first view the page. You can “Expand All” sections or just individual ones.

The sections you see will match those where you have entered data in your parent SAGE Budget and any sub budgets. The possible sections are:

General Section Layout

SAGE Budget data is displayed on the left side of the page, in the same order as your SAGE Budget. The RR Detailed Budget expense category to which the expense will be mapped is shown on the right side.

Each section will display a status icon to indicate the status of the data within the section. A red exclamation point indicates that there are one or more expenses from your SAGE Budget that you need to map to an RR Detailed Budget category or sub-category. A green check mark indicates that all mappings are resolved. The Participant/Trainee Support Costs section shows a gray check mark icon if one or more of the optional mappings are unresolved.

Adjust Expense Categories

You can change a number of SAGE Budget expense categories from the default value to another category on the RR Detailed Budget. Use the drop-down menus in the right-hand column to make changes to the default mapping between SAGE Budget and the RR Detailed Budget form. Some selections are grayed-out to indicate that the SAGE Budget object code cannot be mapped to that selection. For example, Travel costs cannot be assigned to Other Personnel.

Create Customized Categories

For some expenses that map to Section F: Other Direct Costs, there is no default sub-category. You must make a selection. These expenses are:

  • Supplies & Materials 05-47, 05-48
  • Student Aid 08-00, 08-02, 08-05
  • Unallocated 38-00

You can either select one of the existing sub-categories, or create a customized one. You can add up to 3 custom (user defined) sub-categories for Section F.

Click on “Select…” in the drop-down menu and choose “Other…” You made need to scroll down the list.

Once you have added a customized sub-category, it will appear in the drop-down so that you can choose it for additional expenses. If you edit the name of your customized sub-category, all items you associated with that sub-category will be updated.
