NIH Operates Under a Continuing Resolution

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), including NIH, operates under the Fiscal Year 2016 Continuing Appropriations Act, 2016 (H.R. 719) signed by President Obama on September 30, 2015. This Act (CR) continues government operations through December 11, 2015 at 99.7892 percent of the FY 2015 enacted level.

Continuing the procedures identified under NOT-OD-15-050 and consistent with NIH practices during the CRs of FY 2006 – 2015, the NIH will issue non-competing research grant awards at a level below that indicated on the most recent Notice of Award (generally up to 90% of the previously committed level). Upward adjustments to awarded levels will be considered after FY 2016 appropriations are enacted, but NIH expects institutions to monitor their expenditures carefully during this period. All legislative mandates that were in effect in FY 2015 (see NOT-OD-15-054 and NOT-OD-15-048) remain in effect under this CR, including the salary limitation set at Executive Level II of the Federal Pay Scale as described in NOT-OD-15-049.
