Costs Requiring Prior Approval

Procedures for Requesting Prior Approval

Your cost approval requests must be in writing and must include an explanation justifying the expenditure and the request for prior approval. You may submit these requests in the application, separately, or included in other components of the award or subaward. In general, budget items proposed in your accepted application are considered to be approved and do not require a second request for approval unless explicitly noted as a condition in the award.
