Budget Proposal Worksheet
Before a proposal is processed, there are several factors that must be taken into account. As a Principal Investigator, you must have a good idea of how much your project will cost, what kinds of equipment it will require, how much assistance you will approximately need, travel expenses, etc.
Before e-mailing a proposal specialist, please download and fill out the Budget Proposal Worksheet.
Filling this sheet out before hand will not only help your proposal specialist process various requests faster, but will also help you fill out multiple other forms later on with a better idea of what your project will cost.
This form must be ﬁled by all persons employed by UC or CSU who have principal responsibility for a research project if the project is to be funded or supported, in whole or in part, by a contract or grant (or other funds earmarked by the donor for a speciﬁc research project or for a speciﬁc researcher) from a nongovernmental entity. Reporting requirements are outlined in Regulation 18755. This regulation provides that research funding by certain non-proﬁt entities will not trigger disclosure. This regulation is available on the FPPC website.
The 700-U form can be found by clicking here

The Sponsored Project Proposal Form is a vital piece of a proposal. This form can be generated within the RAPID software. Make sure to use the correct SPPF, such as using continuation if you are working on an SPPF for a continuing project. The SPPF must be printed out from RAPID and should be signed at the time of turning in your proposal.
The NEPA/CEQA forms are required for proposals and are also created through the RAPID software. Make sure that this is also signed at the time of turning in the proposal.
Conflict of Interest (COI) Disclosure Form
State and Federal Law requires Conflict of Interest disclosures for certain sponsors.
