This document is available on the following USDOL websites:
Greetings, In your sample detail budget template, direct labor, Equipment, non-activity supplies and office/vehicle running cost are not divided by output. We want to confirm that these costs are not required to be divided by output. Only activity related cost is split by output.
On the other hand, all travel cost, M&E and Audit cost are lumped as one Output called M&E. We want to confirm that all travel international and domestic is being included here under the M&E output.
Applicants must propose a budget that provides a realistic and accurate summary of planned costs. If a given cost within the project budget is specific to a given output, that cost should be included in the outputs-based budget among costs directly related to that specific output. If a given cost is not specific to a given output (e.g., a cost that contributes to more than one output), then the Applicant may present that cost in the budget as a separate line item. Applicants should seek to present budget information in the clearest manner to facilitate USDOL review.
