INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE OF SUMMARY PROPOSAL BUDGET
(NSF FORM 1030A)


1. General

a. Each grant proposal, including requests for supplemental funding, must contain a Summary Proposal Budget in this format unless a pertinent announcement/solicitation specifically provides otherwise. A Summary Proposal Budget need not be submitted for incremental funding unless the original grant letter did not indicate specific incremental funding or if adjustments to the planned increment exceeding the greater of 10% or $10,000 are being requested.
b. Copies of NSF Form 1030A and instructions should be reproduced locally.
c. For SBIR Phase II Proposals - a cumulative budget for the full term of the grant is required.
d. Completion of this summary does not eliminate the need to document and justify the amounts requested in each category. Such documentation should be provided on additional page(s) immediately following the budget in the proposal and should be identified by line item. The documentation page(s) should be titled "Budget Justification/Explanation Page."
e. If a revised budget is required by NSF, it must be signed and dated by the Authorized Organizational Representative and Principal Investigator and submitted in at least the original and two copies.

2. Budget Line Items

A full discussion of the budget and the allowability of selected items of cost is contained in the Grant Proposal Guide, NSF Grant Policy Manual (GPM).
