This Notice provides clarification to the guidance about the NIH Fiscal Operations Plan for FY 2011 and implementation of the Department of Defense and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act of 2011 (P.L. 112-10) that was announced in NOT-OD-11-068

Non-Competing Research Awards for All NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs) Except the National Cancer Institute (NCI):  The FY 2011 appropriation level specified in P.L. 112-10 reduces funding from FY 2010 levels and thus warrants reductions in commitment levels for NIH research grants.  Non-modular research grants, from all ICs, with the single exception of NCI, will be reduced to 1 percent below the FY 2010 award level.  Future year commitments will be adjusted for inflation based on this revised FY 2011 level, taking into account the policy assumption in the FY 2012 President’s Budget.  Modular grants will be reduced to 1 percent below the FY 2010 level and may be reduced by an inflationary adjustment level set by each Institute or Center (up to the level set by that Institute or Center for non-modular research grants).  The adjusted FY2011 award level will also be the new base for future year commitments.   

Non-Competing Research Awards for NCI:   For NCI, Non-modular research grants will be reduced to 3 percent below the FY 2010 award level.  Future year commitments will be adjusted for inflation based on this revised FY 2011 level, taking into account the policy assumption in the FY 2012 President’s Budget.   Modular grants will be reduced to 3 percent below the FY 2010 level.

Additional Information:   Additional details on Fiscal Operations, including specific funding strategies for ICs will be posted at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/financial/index.htm
