National Institutes of Health (NIH) 

This addendum to RFA-RM-04-017, “Molecular Libraries Screening Centers Network”
which was released in the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts 
on April 21, 2004 gives notice that NIH staff wish to clarify the 
section on funds available with respect to budget requests for 
equipment in years 2 and 3 of the project period for the pilot MLSCN 

The direct cost budget (excluding equipment) may not exceed $1,000,000 
in the first year.   The costs for up to $500,000 for equipment may be 
included in year one, but should be well justified, (and, to repeat, 
does not count towards the $1,000,000 direct cost limit.)

The direct cost budget (including equipment) may not exceed $2,000,000 
in the second year or $3,000,000 in the third year.  No limit is placed 
on the allowable costs for equipment in the second and third years, but 
equipment costs should be well justified, and the entire direct cost 
budget cannot exceed the limits listed above.

F&A costs (sometimes known as indirect costs) of subcontractors will 
not count against the direct cost limits.
