QD2 Budget & Reimbursement

The QD2 projects will have the same budget amount that the D2 projects had, which is $396.00. 

Since you are not providing meals & craft services on the QD2, you can use these funds for other production-related expenses. This could include Design elements (set décor, props, wardrobe, etc), or Cine elements (foam core, visqueen, etc), or Production Supplies (cleaning supplies, office supplies, etc).

Directors can use the Budget Template from thesis to help you estimate your production expenses.

There are two ways for you to receive these funds:

Advance

In order to request and advance of those funds, you will need to submit your completed Budget to me, along with the Petty Cash Agreement form.

  • It will take 3-5 days for the funds to be added to your prepaid Visa card, so be sure to plan accordingly.
  • If you do not spend all that you had been advanced, you will need to pay back the balance by writing a check to FSU.
  • You will be responsible for turning in receipts along with a Reimbursement Voucher showing how all the money was spent, due by 5pm on Mon, June 15.

Reimbursement

You can spend your own money, then turn in your receipts for reimbursement along with a Reimbursement Voucher.

  • It will take 3-5 days for the funds to be added to your prepaid Visa card, so be sure to plan accordingly.
  • The deadline for submitting reimbursements is by 5pm on Mon, June 15.

Some important guidelines/restrictions for reimbursement:

  • These funds can only be used for purchasing or renting production-related items. They can not be used for paying for someone’s services, nor for any travel expenses.
  • You will NOT be reimbursed from petty cash for any of the following: alcohol, cigarettes, medication, vitamins, gratuity or tip.
  • All non-expendable items $50 or more become the property of FSU and must be turned in at the end of the cycle.
