Impact of Federal Budget Sequestration on Research Dartmouth Resource Page
NIH Fiscal Policy for Grant Awards – FY 2013 Notice provides guidance about the NIH Fiscal Operations for the remainder of FY 2013.
- FY 2013 Funding Levels: Non-competing continuation awards that have already been made in FY 2013 were generally funded at levels below that indicated on the most recent Notice of Award (generally up to 90% of the previously committed level). Such reductions may be partially restored, but are unlikely to be restored to the previous commitment level. Therefore, non-competing continuation grants (research and non-research) including those that remain to be issued in FY 2013 likely will be made at levels below those indicated on the Notice of Award. Commitments for continuation awards in FY 2014 and beyond will remain unchanged.
- The NIH will make an effort to keep the average size of competing awards constant at FY 2012 levels, but is likely to make fewer competing awards in FY 2013. The NIH awarding Institutes/Centers (IC) will develop and post their fiscal policies consistent with overall NIH goals and available FY 2013 funds.Inflationary
- Increases for Future Years: Inflationary increases for future year commitments will be discontinued for all competing research grant awards issued in FY 2013 extending the policy established in FY 2012 (see NOT-OD-12-036), however adjustments for special needs (such as equipment and added personnel) will continue to be accommodated.
- Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Awards (NRSA): The stipend levels established in FY 2012 will be continued in FY 2013 (see NOT-OD-12-033).
NIH Changes to Public Access Policy Compliance Efforts Apply to All Awards with Anticipated Start Dates on or after July 1, 2013
For non-competing continuation grant awards with a start date of July 1, 2013 or beyond: 1) NIH will delay processing of an award if publications arising from it are not in compliance with the NIH public access policy. 2) Investigators will need to use My NCBI to enter papers onto progress reports. Papers can be associated electronically using the RPPR, or included in the PHS 2590 using the My NCBI generated PDF report. Read More here
