(From the February 2014 issue of Research Now)
The NIH is still operating under an FY13 continuing resolution. This means that non-competing awards should expect to be cut about 10% until such time that 2014 appropriations are in place. At that time, we hope to see revised award notices restoring the cuts.
Also, the federal salary cap for executive level II has increased from $179,700 to $181, 500 effective January 12, 2014. New awards and submissions will have the new rate applied when applicable. Review full NIH notice. If you have questions please contact your SPO.
