Purpose

The purpose of this Notice is to change Part 2. Section II, Award Information in PAR-14-195 "Centers of Excellence in Genomic Science (CEGS) (RM1)".

 

Part 2. Section II. Award Information

Award Budget

Currently reads:
Applicants may request up to $2 million direct costs for any year for continuing operations (e.g., personnel, standard laboratory equipment, supplies, travel, consortia, and other expenses). Inflationary adjustments will not be allowed. Many applications will not need to request the maximum budget and the size and duration of the awards will vary because the nature and scope of research programs will vary. Because of the unusual nature of these Centers, there may be a need to acquire specialized equipment. Funds for such specialized equipment may be requested in excess of the $2 million operating limit if well justified. Specialized equipment in excess of $500,000 over the life of the grant will generally not be permitted.

Modified to read:
Applicants may request up to $1.5 million direct costs for any year for continuing operations (e.g., personnel, standard laboratory equipment, supplies, travel, consortia, and other expenses). Inflationary adjustments will not be allowed. Many applications will not need to request the maximum budget and the size and duration of the awards will vary because the nature and scope of research programs will vary. Because of the unusual nature of these Centers, there may be a need to acquire specialized equipment. Funds for such specialized equipment may be requested in excess of the $1.5 million operating limit if well justified. Specialized equipment in excess of $500,000 over the life of the grant will generally not be permitted.

All other aspects of this FOA remain the same.
