Why was my budget amendment request denied?

The most common reasons budget requests are denied are: (1) the request was submitted after the deadline; (2) the revised budget does not agree with the narrative; (3) the request includes items that are unallowable or unreasonable according to grant guidelines; (4) the request was not submitted on the approved form or in the correct format.  Denied requests are sent back to the sub-grantee for negotiation (correction) within a specified time frame.  For instructions on how to submit a budget amendment, go to the OGMS Training & Resources page:  https://www.dcjs.virginia.gov/grants/ogms-training-resources
