Financial Accounting Analysis For Prevention HIV/AIDS Program

For this part of your Scholar-Practitioner Project you will develop a financial accounting analysis of the public health initiative you selected in week 2. In your analysis, be sure to incorporate return on investment, time-value of money, and inflation factors.

The financial accounting analysis should include:

· A 5-year proposed budget including major line items (see blank form for proposed budget on NIH grants page located in the course syllabus or here:
Online Article: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (2009, June). Public health service: PHS 398. Detailed Budget for Initial Budget Period Form Page 4  and Form Page 5

· (Concentrate on the budget and completing the two form sections)
Grant Application PHS 398. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Public Health Service.

o There is a $500,000 Direct Cost per year limit ( as noted in the PHS 398 Instructions page 22)

· An analysis of budget line items, costs, sources of revenue, and deficits (This is the budget justification)

· An analysis of the fiscal soundness and long-term viability of the public health initiative

· The 5pages include the 2 government forms. Note that the budget justification can/should be single spaced.

· You must submit only one document for grading in Blackboard…no exceptions.

· Figuring out the government forms is part of the SPP experience.

· Be sure to visit the NIH website, the forms can actually be downloaded in other formats.

· Here are some Q & A from the other section of the course. I thought it would be useful to share.


· Question: We are to make this project our own.  If I see fit to add personnel or anything to my budget, I can do so as long as I have justification or do I have to stick to the existing budgets that I see for the initiative?


Question:  In order to discuss the fiscal soundness and long-term viability of the public health initiative, I would just add supportive data to make a case for this analysis that is included in the project?


· Question: For my budget is it okay if I just do my area Dougherty County instead of trying to figure out the budget for all 60 counties that are involved with the health initiative?
