FY 2015 Financial Management Plan
NIAAA provides leadership in the national effort to reduce alcohol-related problems: http://www.niaaa.nih.gov/about-niaaa.
Additional information on the NIH budget and fiscal operations is posted at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/financial/.
These guidelines reflect NIAAA funding policy under the NIH Fiscal Operations for FY 2015:
- P01/R01/U01, Research Centers, U10, and R24/R25/R28/U24 grants/cooperative agreements will be reduced to achieve an aggregate reduction equal to 10 percent of the direct costs of the project. Large projects with direct costs close to or exceeding $500,000 may require greater reductions, which will be considered on a case by case basis.
- R21/R34/U34 grants will be reduced by ¼ module if direct costs are at or above $100,000.
New Investigators The NIAAA is committed to helping first-time R01 awardees. Applicants eligible for consideration as first-time R01 investigators in FY 2015 will be paid using an extended percentile payline. Applications beyond the extended payline may also be considered for funding as exceptions. New Investigators just beyond the extended payline are invited to submit a letter to respond to the summary statement critique. These responses are reviewed by Program Staff, and when deemed appropriate, the application may be recommended to Institute leadership for award. Also, when making decisions on applications of high program priority, new investigator status is one of the criteria considered for funding beyond the formal payline.
NIAAA will follow the NIH Policy and work towards supporting new investigators on R01 equivalent awards at success rates equivalent to that of established investigators submitting new R01 equivalent applications.
