NIH recently announced that it will fund non-competing research awards at
97.1% of the FY 2007 commitment level.  Consequently, NIH investigators
should implement expenditure plans with this 2.9% reduction in mind.
Non-competing awards previously issued in FY 2007 at reduced levels will be
revised to restore funds to the level indicated above.  Also, please note
that that future year commitments will be adjusted to reflect funding at

NIH has indicated that it will maintain flexibility to supplement
non-competing awards on a case by-case basis according to scientific and
programmatic imperatives, but that such supplements will not be base
building for future year commitments.  It has also clarified that this
fiscal policy does not apply to Career Awards, SBIR/STTRs, and Ruth L.
Kirschstein-National Research Service Award (NRSA) Individual Fellowships &
Institutional Training Grants- these mechanisms will be funded at the
committed level.
