Sync your SAGE Budget to Grant Runner RR Detailed Budget

Save time and effort with Budget Sync

We are pleased to announce the highly-anticipated SAGE Budget Sync feature. This software release provides the ability to sync data from a SAGE Budget you’ve created to a Grant Runner RR Detailed Budget, using the existing “Connect a Budget” feature on the eGC1.

Once the budget is connected, you will make all expense updates in SAGE Budget, and redirect where you would like expenses to show up using the new Sponsor Budget Map page. All updates will automatically flow through to the RR Detailed Budget. See the Budget Sync Job Aid for more details!

Expense amounts are changed in a single place – SAGE Budget
Much less cross-checking between budgets

Improves accuracy
Single source for budget data

Reviewers no longer need to cross-check multiple budgets
