WHub Preaward

The W-Hub assists the PI and senior project personnel with funding opportunity identification, proposal planning, preparation of standard documents, budget and grant application development in eTRACs, in compliance to ECU’s Routing Timeline. Tools and resources below assist those processes.

Budget Development

Budget development deserves careful preparation and the W-Hub encourages faculty to contact their Pre-award Grant Manager early for assistance in budget development. The budget in eTRACs interfaces with the BANNER personnel system, and it provides the opportunity to build a budget and export an MS Excel version in the cost planning and negotiation phases of careful budget development. Each faculty and other named ECU personnel, whether key or non-key personnel, is identified as personnel at ECU through BANNER and eTRACs is the budget of record. Standard cost items to plan for:
  • Personnel
  • Equipment
  • Participant Support
  • Travel
  • Materials & Supplies
  • Subaward/Collaborators
  • Consultants
  • Other Costs
