The Office of Personnel Management has recently released new salary levels for the Executive Pay Scale. Effective January 6, 2019, the salary limitation for Executive Level II is $192,300.
The National Institutes of Health has issued Guidance on Salary Limitation for Grants and Cooperative Agreements FY 2019 (NOT-OD-19-099).
For federal awards issued in those years that were restricted to Executive Level II, including competing awards already issued in FY2019, if adequate funds are available in active awards, and if the salary cap increase is consistent with the institutional base salary, grantees may rebudget funds to accommodate the current Executive Level II salary level. However, no additional funds will be provided to these grant awards.
