Appendix 5- Signature Authorization Sheet

Every year since 1990 Congress has legislatively mandated a provision limiting the direct salary that an individual may receive under an NIH grant.  For FY 20012, Public Law 112-74: The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2012 restricts the amount of direct salary to Executive Level II of the Federal Executive Pay scale.  To review the current salary caps, see the following site:

In May 2013 the NIH released the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013 (P.L. 113-6), which was signed by President Obama on March 26, 2013.  The same limits apply to SAMHSA awards.  This discontinued inflationary increases for future year commitments on all competing research grant awards issued in FY 2013 extending the policy established in FY 2012 (see NOT-OD-12-036). Adjustments for special needs (such as equipment and added personnel) will continue to be accommodated.
