Abstract: In response to grant monitors need for a better reporting mechanism for grantee budgets, the G5 team developed an electronic budget form for grantees to complete. This electronic form requires grantees to detail the budget categories from which they are expending funds for Department grant monitors to track more carefully the drawdowns and financial management systems of grantees. Although this form may be used by all grantees, at this time only grantees on cost reimbursement or route payment status will be required to use this form when reporting their budget, requesting funds, and accessing funds.
