This amount includes subcontractors. Space rental for program staff can not be higher than the negotiated rate, which is based on total Full Time Equivalent (FTE). (100sq ft. x FTE(s) x $1.00 per sq ft. x 12)

13 Budget and Strategy The following six documents will serve as a model for building your current fiscal year budget. The grant agreement budget – Provides you with the five line item totals you need to create your current year budget. Last prior approved fiscal year budget – Provides you with an example of how you estimated expenditures in the previous fiscal year. Previous fiscal year invoices – They will show you how the money was actually spent. The current proposed workplan – Provides you an idea of what positions may be needed in order to estimate staff’s full time equivalent (FTE). Attachments B1 & B2 budget resource documents – will assist grantee's in budgeting detail line item expenditures correctly and provide budget requirements. Contract Manager (CM) – your CM is also a good resource when you have questions.
14 Remember: the budget is always your best estimate. Invoicing is always based on actual expenses. Seldom is your best estimate the same as actual expenditures. It’s likely that you will require one if not two budget revisions during the fiscal year to accommodate actual expenditures. Budget and Strategy Continued…

25 Budget Revisions There are Three (3) Types of Revisions Informal Allowable Line Item Shift Formal Budget Revision (no Grant Amendment required) Formal Budget Revision (Grant Amendment required )
26 Budget Revisions Informal Allowable Line Item Shift Description The description of an informal budget revision is the shifting of funds within each of the major line categories without changing the bottom line totals. Budget Format Always use the most current approved template. Requesting a Budget Revision To request a budget revision the Grantee needs to prepare the revision and the excel template to their Contract Manager for a preliminary review before a signature is obtained. Before ing the template, verify that your budget is still balanced by reviewing the information in the box titled “SGF Balance” (located on the budget summary page) This box should reflect a blank box or a positive dollar amount between $1 – $10. If the box contains a positive dollar amount of $11 and above or is red, you will need to review your budget information and make the necessary changes to bring you budget back into balance. Approval Process Once all the revised information is preliminarily approved, the CM will advise the Grantee to obtain the required signature and submit it for formal approval. Grantee will then mail the signed original document to their assigned CM. The CM will then review to make sure it was the correct revision submitted. Once approved, the CM will a PDF copy of the budget approval letter to the Project Director/Coordinator and Fiscal Contact. The CM will approve the revised budget as soon as possible as long as there are no other changes needed or other pending issues to resolve.
27 Budget Revisions Continued.. Formal Budget Revision (no Grant Agreement required) Description The Grantee may shift between expense categories any amount up to $25,000 at one time for a contract totaling $250,000 or less, or Ten percent of the contract total may be shifted at one time for the contract exceeding $250,001. However cumulative shifts may not exceed $50,000 annually in either case. Also, the Maximum Amount Payable does not change. Budget Format Always use the most current approved template and reflect that it is a BR1 or BR2 as appropriate using the drop down arrows. Requesting a Budget Revision The requesting process is the same as the informal budget revision. Approval Process The approval process is exactly the same as the informal allowable line item shift revision.
28 Budget Revisions Continued.. Formal Budget Revision (Grant Amendment required) Description If the line item shifts in the revision are higher than $25,000 or 10% for Grants over $250,001, or the Maximum Amount Payable to the Grantee changed, it means a Grant Amendment needs to be prepared. Budget Format Always use the most current approved template and reflect that it is a BR1 or BR2 as appropriate using the drop down arrows. Requesting a Budget Revision Grantees will create the revision and submit it to your contract manager for a preliminary review. Once it’s received preliminary approval, the CM will prepare the Grant Amendment Forms. Approval Process The approval process for a Grant Amendment is much longer than the other two revisions because the Amendment documents require review and approval signatures from the CDPH and the Grantee. The approval time frame to receive an executed Grant Amendment is usually 2-3 Months.
29 Payments Four Types of Payments Initial Allotment Up to twenty-five (25) percent of the yearly grant amount can be requested at the beginning of each fiscal year. Quarterly Invoices Invoice for actual expenditures. Submitted each quarter of the fiscal year. Supplemental Invoice – Final Invoice One supplemental invoice can be submitted each fiscal year. Submit supplemental invoice after all four quarterly invoices are submitted to close out the fiscal year. Final Invoice - Expiration of Grant Term A final undisputed invoice will be submitted at expiration of grant term. A Contractor’s Release Form must be included. (This form releases OFP from any further responsibility to provide reimbursement towards this grant.)
30 I&E and MIP grantee's may annually request an initial allotment up to 25% of their current annual grant amount. An initial allotment payment can be requested only if all of the following criteria are met. The grant has been fully executed; The Governor’s Budget for the fiscal year has been signed; and The Grantee has repaid all of the previous years initial allotment. The initial allotment is recouped in 1/3 increments from the first three quarterly invoices. If unable to recoup the entire allotment within the first three quarters, we will continue through the 4 th quarter and any supplemental invoices, if needed. (If after all invoicing has been completed and the Grantee still has a balance owing, they would need to contact their contract manager to discuss repayment options.) The form to request the initial allotment can be located on the OFP using the I&E and MIP allotment template. It must be printed on Grantee letterhead when submitted.
