This Notice informs the community of a correction to the General Application Guide SF424 (R&R) - Forms Version C instructions related to preparing R&R Budget forms for subaward budgets which are not active for all periods of the prime budget.
The guidance found under "Submitting Subaward Budgets that are not Active for all Periods of the Prime Grant" in section "4.8 Special Instructions for Preparing Applications with a Subaward/Consortium" no longer aligns with our system processing. That section should be replaced in its entirety with the following:
Submitting Subaward Budgets That Are Not Active for All Periods of the Prime Grant
Complete all budget periods in the R&R Budget form for your subaward budgets, aligning the budget period numbers, start dates and end dates with the budget periods of the prime grant.
Example: The prime fills out an R&R Budget form with the following periods:
The budget period numbers and dates should be the same in the R&R Budget forms for the subawards.
The R&R Budget forms do not allow for "empty" budget periods. They include several required fields which must be completed (even for inactive periods) in order to successfully submit.
Provide the following information for inactive budget periods:
The next iteration of the General Application Guide SF424 (R&R) - Forms Version C will include the correction.
