PI ARTICLE: The Cost-Benefit Relationship

One of the fundamentals of grant accounting is the importance of the cost-benefit relationship. A sponsored source of funds should not bear a cost without receiving commensurate benefit. This relates to all categories of cost, which include salaries, fringe benefits, materials & supplies, travel, subcontract expenses, high-performance computing, and myriad others. Before costs are charged to sponsored funds, the question to always ask is: how will this award benefit from this cost? More PI articles are found in the archive.
