Can I cost share my effort?
|Can I cost share my effort?|
Yes, if you have a paid university appointment, have eligible time available to devote to the project, have obtained the required approvals, and if the sponsor permits. You must include all contributed effort – person months and the financial commitment—on the internal Proposal Transmittal and approved by the appropriate Unit Executive Officer or delegate. However, to the extent possible, you should include effort to be expended in performance of the project as a direct salary cost in the proposal budget. You may only use effort paid from a sponsored project as Cost Sharing if both sponsors approve of its use.
