New Salary Cap: NIH and AHRQ

The National Institutes of Health has released an announcement regarding the new salary cap: Guidance on Salary Limitation for Grants and Cooperative Agreements FY 2021 (NOT-OD-21-057).

Effective January 3, 2021, the salary limitation for Executive Level II is $199,300.

For issued awards that were restricted to Executive Level II (see Salary Cap Summary (FY 1990 - Present)), including competing awards already issued in FY2021, if adequate funds are available in active awards, and if the salary cap increase is consistent with the institutional base salary, recipients may rebudget funds to accommodate the current Executive Level II salary level.
