  2. Budget Manager or Project Manager (Cost Object Approver) – Updates to Budget Manager and Authorized Signer go through the FSU Budget Office using their Update Existing Department ID Form. Please refer to their policies here for more information. Updates to Project Manager go through the Sponsored Research Administration Office using their Personnel Change FormPlease refer to their policies here for more information.
