    Modular budgets please refer to modular budget sample handout l.jpg

    Modular BudgetsPlease refer to Modular Budget sample handout

    • Do NOT use Detailed budget AND Modular Budget-choose just 1.

    • Modular is MOST COMMON and is for direct costs < $250,000 per year. (In $25K increments) so $25K, $50K, $75K, $100K, $125K, $150K, $175K, $200K, $225K or $250K are your only options in the pull-down box for A.This amount is usually the same for each year in the budget.

      • Drexel indirect costs are NOT included in this calculation.

      • Subcontract (Consortium) indirect costs are NOT included in this calculation.

    Office of Research

    Compliance and Administration


    Modular budgets continued l.jpg

    Modular Budgets-continued

    • Many boxes auto-fill as you fill out the form.

    • For section B: Indirect cost type is MTDC or Modified Total Direct Cost.

    • Indirect cost rate is usually 50%.

    • The base will NOT include Drexel indirect costs, but will contain the 1st $25K of each subcontract agreement.

    • For Cognizant Agency info-look at the Fact Sheet.

    • Fill out each year (up to 5 years on this form) and the Cumulative amounts will auto fill. Total cost must equal total direct costs plus total indirect costs.

    • BE CAREFUL to correctly enter all start and end dates for the budget periods.

    Office of Research

    Compliance and Administration


    Modular budgets continued19 l.jpg

    Modular Budgets-Continued

    • After Cumulative Budget information is the place for Budget justifications.

    • You MAY need to upload 3 different justifications!

      • Personnel Justification-REQUIRED

        • List all personnel and their roles

        • Names and number of person months and if calendar, academic or summer months.

        • NO individual salary information

    Office of Research

    Compliance and Administration


    Modular budgets continued20 l.jpg

    Modular Budgets-Continued

    • Consortium Justification- Most likely a subcontract and this PDF justification should be provided to the PI from the subcontractor.

      • Provide total dollar amount for each year-rounded to $1,000 and include direct & indirect costs.

      • List the organization name-and indicate if it is domestic or foreign.

      • List all personnel, roles and their effort.

      • Do NOT list individual salaries.

        *** While their indirect costs do not figure into the modular budget limit of < $250,000, TOTAL consortium costs must be included in the overall requested modular direct cost amount.

    Office of Research

    Compliance and Administration


    Modular budgets continued21 l.jpg

    Additional Narrative Justification-use if your modular direct costs are not the SAME each year.

    Example 1

    Year 1 $25K

    Year 2 $25K

    Year 3 $25K

    NOT NEEDED

    Example 2

    Year 1 $50K

    Year 2 $25K

    Year 3 $25K

    NEEDED-might explain that equipment is needed to be purchased the 1st year.

    Multiple pis l.jpg

    Multiple PIs

    • Must follow University rules of who can be a PI.

    • No ceiling on the # of PIs-but it will be part of the review process-must make sense.

    • ONE must be designated as the “contact PI” responsible for the communication between PIs and NIH. This is the only PI who receive notification concerning submission errors.

    • Presence of more than 1 identified PI on an application or award diminishes neither the responsibility not the accountability for all components of the project.

    • If other PI is at another institution-continue to use the subcontract mechanism.

    Office of Research

    Compliance and Administration


    Slide24 l.jpg

    PI eRA Commons User ID-case sensitive- must be supplied here for successful submission. If multiple PIs-EACH must have eRA Commons User ID.

    No longer needs to be alphabetical-but the reviewers will see them in this order.

    Be Sure to choose PI/PD for the PI. CoPI is no longer recognized-use “other” and write “Significant Contributor” next to it.

    Biosketch not over 4 pages.

    NO current & pending at application time.

    Do NOT list PI as Key Person #1

    Enter PI Commons User ID
