NIH NOT_OD_12_017: The NIH Operates Under a Continuing Resolution
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) including the NIH operates under a Continuing Resolution (CR) that was signed by President Obama on November 19, 2011. The CR continues government operations through December 16, 2011 at the FY 2011 level minus 1.5 percent.
Until FY 2012 appropriations are enacted, NIH will issue non-competing research grant awards at a level below that indicated on the most recent Notice of Award (generally up to 90% of the previously committed level). This is consistent with our practice during the CRs of FY 2006 - 2011. Upward adjustments to awarded levels will be considered after our FY 2012 appropriations are enacted but NIH expects institutions to monitor their expenditures carefully during this period.
