National Institutes of Health (NIH) ( )

NIH has received an appropriation for the remainder of FY2007 through P.L. 110-005: Revised Continuing Appropriations Resolution, FY 2007.   This now allows NIH to fully implement the FY2007 fiscal policies announced December 15, 2006 in Notice-OD-07-030

Non-competing Research Awards

To implement the FY2007 fiscal guidance, non-competing research awards will be awarded at 97.1% of the FY 2007 committed level.   Future year commitments also will be adjusted accordingly.  Institutes and centers (ICs) will maintain the flexibility to supplement such non-competing awards on a case by-case basis according to scientific and programmatic imperatives. However, such supplements will not be considered as part of the base for future budgetary adjustments. 

Non-competing awards previously issued in FY 2007 at reduced levels will be revised to restore funds to the level indicated above.
This policy does not apply to Career Awards, SBIR/STTRs, and Ruth L. Kirschstein-National Research Service Award (NRSA) Individual Fellowships & Institutional Training Grants.
