01/26/16 NIH FY2016 Funding Levels

Non-competing continuation awards that have already been made in FY 2016 were generally funded at levels below that indicated on the most recent Notice of Award (generally up to 90% of the previously committed level) as described in NOT-OD-16-002. In general, such reductions will be fully restored, and non-competing continuation grants (research and non-research) including those that remain to be issued in FY 2016 will be made at the commitment level indicated on the Notice of Award. Out-year commitments for continuation awards in FY 2017 and beyond will remain unchanged. The NIH awarding Institutes/Centers (IC) will develop and post their fiscal policies consistent with overall NIH goals and available FY 2016 funds.

01/20/16 DHHS Subaccount Transition

The agencies under the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), including the National Institutes of Health (NIH), are in the process of transitioning their payment request method. Instead of requesting a single payment for all active DHHS awards, grantees are now required to draw funds on an award by award basis.

01/13/16 Setup Notification Changes

Effective January 14, 2015, SPA will notify Principal Investigators and department administrators about award set up actions after the setup has been completed in both InfoEd and PeopleSoft and all charstrings have been created. In addition to setup notification, Principal Investigator's will continue to be informed when SPA receives a draft award document from a sponsor, before it is accepted by the University.
