NIH has announced the FY17 salary cap at $187,000 effective January 8, 2017. See: https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-17-049.html
If funds are available in active awards, you may rebudget and pay NIH supported researchers up to $187,000. NIH will not provide additional funds to cover the increase, but you are free to rebudget existing funds. UFIRST and myUFL are being updated today and tomorrow to reflect the new cap.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our office.
