Grant Budgets & Pricing

Our grant development supports you in creating a self-sustaining externally funded scientific team for your research that includes our biostatisticians and supporting research personnel (as appropriate). The biostatistician who helps with your grant development is required to have adequate analytic support budgeted in your grant application. Preliminary budgets are provided in our Grant Agreements which are written after we have scheduled an initial meeting with you.

Collaboration and Computational Fees

Our fees are required to be budgeted in your grant application, in addition to salary and benefits. These fees include computing power, computers, data storage and back-up, analytic training, software, books, etc.

Percent Effort/Calendar Month

To aide in the development of your analytic budget we have an FTE policy to align percent effort for our CIDA biostatistician with your proposed work.

Post Award Rebudgeting

If your entire grant budget is cut, we can work with you to modify the work expectations to fit within your available FTE. The percent reduction in the biostatistics budget should be no greater than the overall grant reduction.

Grant Development Funded by CCTSI

Our grant resources are funded in part by the Colorado Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CCTSI), Biostatistics and Epidemiology, and Research Design program (BERD). Please use the CCTSI’s citation and CTSA grant language.
