UPDATED: F&A Waivers on Revised/Simulation Budgets

Update, 2/23/2021

ERA has been updated to no longer require a new waiver if a decrease is made to senior personnel costs on a revised/simulation budget (with a carried-over, approved waiver from a previous version of the budget).

With this update, if/when the following changes are made to a revised/simulation budget, ERA will require a new F&A Waiver to be routed:

  • Increases to Senior Personnel costs
  • Budget increase
  • Change in requested F&A rate or base

Original Post, 1/26/2021:

ERA has been updated to carry-over approved F&A Waivers when creating a revised/simulation budget on the same Funding Proposal (FP). A revised budget created from a sponsor budget that has a fully approved F&A Waiver, will also have the green “F&A Waiver Approved” banner automatically.

Note: If/when the following changes are made to a revised/simulation budget, ERA will require a new F&A Waiver to be routed:

  • Changes to Senior Personnel costs*
  • Budget increase
  • Change in requested F&A rate or base

*In future updates, this feature may be further enhanced to only require a new F&A Waiver if the Senior Personnel costs increase (but not if they decrease).
