Jessica Moore, associate director of financial planning and budgeting at the Carnegie Institution for Science, will lead a postdoc workshop* titled "Congratulations! You won a grant proposal...now what?" at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, April 19, 2017, in the Abelson Collaboration Center as part of DTM's Postdoctoral Development Workshop Series.
Moore's first postdoc workshop, titled "Creating a Successful Cost Proposal," covered different types of cost proposals, the proposal submission process, and how to prepare a budget. She also examined the new Uniform Guidance from the U.S. government, critical areas to review when looking at any request for a proposal, and best practices for developing an accurate budget. In the second installment of this workshop series, Moore will explain the lofty responsibility of managing a grant budget once it is received.
