8.5.4 Recovery of Funds

NIH may identify and administratively recover funds paid to a recipient at any time during the life cycle of a grant. Debts may result from cost disallowances, unobligated balances, unpaid share of any required matching or cost sharing, funds in the recipient's account that exceed the final amount determined to be allowable, or other circumstances. NIH guidance on the repayment of grant funds that are unrelated to audit findings can be found on the OER Web site.
