NIH NOT-OD-12-035: Notice of Salary Limitation on Grants, Cooperative Agreements, and Contracts
This Notice provides information regarding the salary limitation for NIH grant and cooperative agreement awards and extramural research and development contract awards (referred to here as grants).
Every year since 1990 Congress has legislatively mandated a provision limiting the direct salary that an individual may receive under an NIH grant. For FY 2011, the Department of Defense and Full-year Continuing Appropriations Act of 2011 (Public Law 112-10) continued implementation of Public Law 111-117: Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010 which restricted the amount of direct salary to Executive Level I of the Federal Executive Pay scale; this information was published May 4, 2011 in the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts (NOT-OD-11-073). No increase had been provided for Federal salaries.
For FY 2012 the Consolodated Appropriations Act, 2012 (Public Law 112-74) signed into law on December 23, 2011, restricts the amount of direct salary to Executive Level II of the Federal Executive Pay scale. The Executive Level II salary is $179,700.
