The Common Fund FY2013 Operating Level: $513,476,000
The NIH is operating under the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013 (P.L. 113-6) (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-13-064.html). The FY 2013 funding plan for Common Fund research is cited below. Commitments for continuation awards in FY 2014 and beyond will remain unchanged.
In accordance with current NIH FY 2013 policy following the enactment of the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act (P.L. 113-6), most noncompeting awards will reflect a reduction from the amount recommended on the previous Notice of Grant Award. In general, all awards will be reduced by 3 percent, with a few exceptions made for scientific reasons. This downward adjustment applies to the Common Fund portion of funds on any award, including co-funded awards.
Competing Grants and Administrative Supplements:
The budget set-aside for each competing funding opportunity announcement through a Common Fund program is reduced by 3 percent. In addition, any budget set-aside for administrative supplements for a Common Fund program is also reduced by 3 percent.
All Common Fund contributions to intramural projects will be reduced by at least 3 percent. Additional targeted reductions will also be made in specific programs.
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.
If a grantee needs further information, contact the program officer or grants management specialist listed on the Notice of Grant Award.
