					                        NIH Modular Budget Worksheet

This form may be substituted for a detailed budget at the time of modular NIH proposal
submissions involving no collaboration with another Emory school or unit. However, we
strongly encourage Principal Investigators/Project Directors to develop a detailed budget
with assistance from a departmental administrator and/or the Office for Research Funding
and Support (ORFS).

NOTE: If an award is made, a detailed budget will be required. You may submit a
detailed budget with Just In Time information or you may choose to wait until an award is
made. Please note that waiting until an award is made before developing a detailed budget
will delay award set up. Regardless of when they are developed, detailed budgets must be
routed to ORFS and OSP for review and approval before an account will be established.
