Preliminary (or pre-GA, or interim) budget proposals are budget proposals which are sent in separate from the total budget proposal of a committee, and can be sent in throughout the year. For instance, if your committee is handed an opportunity to organize an amazing event, but you have not budgeted for it for the October GA, you can send in a preliminary budget proposal to your CAO. In this email you have to include the overview of specific costs and incomes – like you did when you send in your budget proposal for the October GA – and a written justification explaining why your committee needs this budget. To improve your chances of getting approval for this proposal, it is best to send in a budget allocation with this proposal as well. This means you propose to spend money that was meant for event A on your new event instead. You can only reserve a date, start your ticket sales and promote the event after you have received written approval from the AUCSA Board.
