Internal Endorsement Procedure
Middlebury's internal endorsement procedure uses the grant proposal Endorsement Form (known as the “blue sheet” because it is printed on blue paper) to collect information about proposals for external funding and to document compliance with college and sponsor policies and federal regulations.
Other Direct Costs
Direct Costs: Salary, Wages, Fringe
Use the current gross academic year salary as a base for calculating salaries. To estimate annual percentage increments for multi-year budgets, use the current approved percentage.
If you have questions about salary figures, check with the Payroll Manager (ext. 2008). Academic-year salary may not be included unless the faculty member is scheduled for leave or has permission from the Dean of Faculty (DOF).
Budgets must conform with agency regulations and with all of the College's grant-related policies and procedures.
