Honestly I wouldn't let the budgie and parrot near each other.
Being out at the same time maybe, if you make darned sure you can monitor them and keep them somewhat separated.
A budgie is not built to withstand a non-budgie parrot bite. And they will sometimes fly off if there's danger, sometimes get in the face of any bird. But there's also the chance the bite will be unexpected. Budgies are so energetic, their movements alone can intimidate or startle a larger bird.
I've seen a few unfortunate youtube vids, made by idiots where the budgies didn't get off easy while interacting with larger birds. Not that I needed to see that on youtube, home of the stupid, but just in case you need concrete evidence that it's a risk.
