NIH Releases Guidance for FY20 Salary Caps



Effective January 5, 2020, the NIH increased their salary cap from $192,300 to $197,300, 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-20-065 and the Salary Cap Summary for more details.
