18 What happens when you don’t ask…

19 Discuss with Sponsor’s Budget Agent This is usually a different person than the “Study Start Up” group. Ask for the most that you believe that you can get. Keep a documentation trail. “So we’ve agreed on a budget…. When can you submit this to your IRB?”

20 Submit to your Department Check with your Department  If required, electronically submit your agreed budget amount Contract Protocol Informed Consent (if you have it completed) Continue to communicate with your Department and the Sponsor’s Contract Agent

21 Department’s Responsibilities Completion of several internal budget forms, request center number, obtain signatures, create and submit a transmittal form to Grants and Contracts This may take several weeks.
