Proposal Budget Spreadsheet (PBS)

PBS is a spreadsheet program used to assist faculty and staff in the accurate creation of proposal budgets.  Please note that due to limited resources PBS is not supported on the Macintosh platform. PBS is based on the Microsoft Excel product so that functions common to both PC and Macintosh platforms will work on the Macintosh, however a significant number of functions such as forms printing are not compatible with the Macintosh.  PBS requires Microsoft Excel 2002 or greater.  View University computing standards.
