Budget Adjustments

Occasionally, sponsored funds may need to be reallocated, or moved from one budget category to another. These changes cannot increase or decrease the total budget. Some adjustments may also require prior approval by the sponsor; these will be described in the award document.

If your department requires an updated budget that differs from the budget in the executed award document, the IPAS/OPAS form is used to request a budget reallocation. If no prior approval is required, send the completed form via email to If the initial budget was set up incorrectly in Banner, an IPAS/OPAS form is not needed. The specialist who manages your award can provide further assistance.

For changes requiring prior approval, contact the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP), who will assist in communicating with the sponsor to obtain approval.
