Large Project Budget Standards
This effort was identified by the Snohomish Coordinated Investment Network and Water and Salmon Grant Program Coordination to increase the transparency and efficiency of large project budget development and revision. The aim is to have a single budget structure with definitions for project status and deliverables that can be shared among multiple grant programs. This allows a project manager to develop and maintain a single budget that can be used to apply for and manage multiple grants over a project life-cycle. This effort is focused on large multi-phase floodplain projects, or reach scale riparian zone projects, which typically depend on mixing multiple awards over multiple phases, such that a standard budget format would be useful.
