On December 30, 2014 the NIH released three important notices.
• Notice of Salary Limitation on Grants, Cooperative Agreements, and Contracts (NOT-OD-15-049): Please start using the new salary cap of $183,300 effective for all proposals submitted on or after January 11, 2015.
• Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Stipends, Tuition/Fees and Other Budgetary Levels Effective for Fiscal Year 2015
• NIH Fiscal Policy for Grant Awards – FY2015 (NOT-OD-15-050):
FY 2015 Funding Levels: Non-competing continuation awards that have already been made in FY 2015 were generally funded at levels below that indicated on the most recent Notice of Award (generally up to 90% of the previously committed level) as described in NOT-OD-15-001. Such reductions may be fully or partially restored, depending on the Institute or Center.
Non-competing continuation grants (research and non-research) including those that remain to be issued in FY 2015 likely will be made within the range between the commitment level indicated on the Notice of Award and 3 percent below that level.
Out-year commitments for continuation awards in FY 2016 and beyond will remain unchanged. The NIH awarding Institutes/Centers (IC) will develop and post their fiscal policies consistent with overall NIH goals and available FY 2015 funds.
