NIH & AHRQ issued announcements that their salary caps increased from $189,600 to $192,300. See NIH Guidance NOT-OD-19-099 and AHRQ Guidance NOT-HS-19-013. The effective date of this increase is January 6th, 2019.
In summary, this is how the $192,300 salary cap can be applied:
- Proposals: NIH and AHRQ proposal budgets may be submitted using the new cap.
- Active Awards: Can rebudget funds to allow for increase in rates. It is a good time to verify all salary allocations, and adjust salary distributions as appropriate.
