|Activity:||NIH Salary Limitation - BC*|
|Things to Know:||Due to the fact that NIH continues to operate under “continuing resolution” status, their policy has not been officially updated.|
The Office of Personnel Management (opm.gov) has increased the Executive Level II of the Federal Executive Pay Scale from $187,000 to $189,600; however, NIH has not formally announced this policy change due to the Continuing Resolution.
For new proposals only, the Executive Level II salary rate of $189,600 may be used for the NIH salary cap.
Until NIH issues further guidance, awards will continue to be established using the 2017 Executive Level II rate of $187,000 as the NIH salary cap.
As soon as official notice is received, the NIH links will be updated with the adjusted amounts.
NIH Notices as they relate to continued operations under a Continuing Resolution and the applicability of the NIH Salary Limitation:
- NIH Operates Under a Continuing Resolution – NOT-OD-17-048.
The Office of Research Administration will update the web page as soon as the appropriation is confirmed.
