Hi everyone!

Can someone tell me the meaning of the word "qualifier" here? How do you understand it? Thanks.

A: How and where do you think you would contribute the most in the role of project manager with the experience and knowledge you have?

B: I’ve given that a lot of thought.
Obviously, there is a great deal of planning that goes into project management.
My belief is that a best practice for every new project is identifying and sourcing the best materials and people, within budget, of course.

A: Yes, of course.
Budget is always a qualifier for project management.


Here it means "component" or "part."
