If you need to request additional departmental funding for your event, please submit a request for funding from your program chair by sending it to the designated program assistant. Budget requests should be made as far in advance as possible.
- What needs to be included in your budget? Rentals, supplies, catering, travel, event promotion, etc.
- Determine event registration & pricing (free, registration fee, etc) if applicable. How will you collect registration and payment?
- Make sure when requesting quotes from vendors you get final cost including all service charges and (where applicable) taxes.
- Alcohol will need to be separated from all other expenses.
- University of Michigan procurement agents are the only individuals permitted to sign contracts. Contracts must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. Procurement needs as much lead time as possible, especially if the vendor is not already registered in the financial system.
