Funding Strategy: Fiscal Year 2015
The NIH is currently operating under a Continuing Resolution (CR) which allows NCCAM to operate through December 11, 2014 at 99.9 percent of the FY 2014 enacted level of $124.3 million. Until the FY 2014 appropriation is finalized, NCCAM will issue non-competing research grant awards at a level below that indicated on the most recent Notice of Award (up to 90% of the previously committed level).
Once NCCAM receives its appropriation from Congress, the FY 2015 funding strategy will be developed and posted on the NCCAM website.
NIH Operates Under a Continuing Resolution
Notice Number: NOT-OD-14-055
October 1, 2014
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), including NIH, operates under the Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015 (H.J.Res. 124) signed by President Obama on September 19, 2014. This Act (CR) continues government operations through December 11, 2014 at 99.9 percent of the FY 2014 enacted level.
Continuing the procedures identified under NOT-OD-14-055 and consistent with NIH practices during the CRs of FY 2006 – 2014, the 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). Upward adjustments to awarded levels will be considered after FY 2015 appropriations are enacted, but NIH expects institutions to monitor their expenditures carefully during this period. All legislative mandates that were in effect in FY 2014 (see NOT-OD-14-053 and NOT-OD-14-046) remain in effect under this CR including the salary limitation set at Executive Level II of the Federal Pay Scale as described in NOT-OD-14-052.
Questions regarding adjustments applied to individual grant awards may be directed to the Grants Management Specialist identified on the Notice of Award.
