Cost Application FAQs
A cost application is a document submitted to an organization indicating the estimated costs associated with a proposed project or program.
Anyone who has been approved by the organization to propose and oversee a project or program can submit a cost application.
A cost application typically includes details about the materials, labor, services, and other resources that are required for the project or program, as well as any potential risk factors or contingencies that may affect its successful completion.
The amount of time it takes to review and approve a cost application can vary, depending on the complexity of the project or program being proposed. Generally speaking, however, most applications are reviewed and approved within one to two weeks.
If your cost application is denied, you may be provided with an explanation as to why it was not approved. You may also be able to resubmit your application with revisions based on the feedback received from the organization. In some cases, you may need to submit a new cost application altogether.
