A Note on "Amount"

For proposals recommended for funding, the amount shown is an upper limit recommended by the Selection Panel. For proposals recommended for reconsideration if revised, the amount provides general guidance on a target that the panel believes should be appropriate for the revised proposal's budget. In a few cases, the panel is providing only general guidance on the topics or tasks that should be included in a revised proposal, without suggesting an amount.

The panel recommends that ERP implementing agencies' staff seek greater budget detail, revised budgets, and use other mechanisms to reduce costs in all the proposals recommended for funding or reconsideration. Overhead and administrative rates, and fees paid for services and consultants, particularly private contractors, should receive particular attention.
