Dear UCI Research Administrators:
For those of you preparing proposal budgets and/or conducting post-award financial management, this short YouTube video about Determining Necessary Costs on a project may be worthwhile for you to view. This video provides a unique example which can serve as a reminder that it is very important for you to have a basic understanding of the scope of work to help your PIs make a determination of what are reasonable, allowable, and allocable costs on their extramural contracts and grants. If you have questions about what costs are appropriate on any of your contracts and grants that you manage, please feel free to contact your Contract and Grant Officers in SPA.
