NIH Releases Guidance for FY18 Salary Caps


Effective January 7, 2018, the NIH increased their salary cap from $187,000 to $189,600, which is the Executive Level II of the Federal Executive pay scale. NIH grantees may rebudget to accommodate the new salary cap for awards issued in specific years that were restricted to Executive Level II, but no additional funds will be provided to the grant awards to accommodate salary increases.

Please see NIH Notice NOT-OD-18-137 and the Salary Cap Summary for more details.
