CHANGE IN 2004 SALARY LIMITATION ON GRANTS, COOPERATIVE AGREEMENTS, AND 
CONTRACTS  

RELEASE DATE:  March 11, 2004

NOTICE:  NOT-OD-04-034

National Institutes of Health (NIH)
 (http://www.nih.gov/)

This notice provides updated information on the FY 2004 salary 
limitation.

On March 3, 2004, an Executive Order (EO) was signed to implement a 
retroactive pay increase for Federal employees.  This EO, which 
implements the pay raise approved by Congress in January, applies to 
certain rates of Federal pay including Executive Level salaries.  As a 
result, the Executive Level I salary level increased, effective January 
1, from $174,500 to $175,700.  
 
Consistent with NIH’s implementation of the FY 2004 salary limitation, 
if grant awards (competing or non-competing) have already been issued 
in FY 2004, no adjustments will be made.  However, rebudgeting is 
allowable.   Additional details on NIH’s implementation of the salary 
limitation can be found at “Salary Limitation on Grants, Cooperative 
Agreements, and Contracts.”

Questions concerning this notice or other policies relating to grants

management office in the appropriate NIH Institute or Center.
