Is the purchase of a high-end instrument (essential to the project) an allowable cost? If so, is there a "ceiling" regarding allowable equipment costs?

1 Answer

What constitutes an allowable budget cost must conform to an institution's rules and regulations that have been federally agreed upon, as well as the provisions set out in the Master Research Agreement (MRA).  According to the MRA, researchers are encouraged to obtain access to necessary equipment, if possible, through collaborations and partnerships.  Please identify equipment costing more than $5,000 within the annual budget template and accompanying budget justification. GoMRI funding can be used to purchase items included in an Approved Research Project, as approved by the GoMRI Research Board.
