Evaluation Toolkit: Sample Budget

This is a straightforward budget example that lists costs associated with four basic expenditure categories: staffing, materials and supplies, equipment and travel.  

This format includes columns for the budgeted amount, amount [spent], and amount remaining which is helpful for managers tracking the expenditures. The expenditure category format may not be as helpful as the cost-per-activity format in illustrating the budget implications of an evaluation design.  When budgeting for a complicated evaluation design, or if adjustments in budget and evaluation design are required during planning, you may consider the cost-per-activity budget matrix.
