As of January 11th, 2015, the NIH salary cap will increase from $181,500 to $183,300.
Per the NIH, the terms “direct salary,” “salary,” and “institutional base salary” have the same meaning for the purposes of salary limitation and exclude fringe benefits and facilities and administrative (F&A) costs.
Per UNMC Institutional Base Salary policy #6102:
- Institutional base salary is capped at the current published NIH salary limitation level only for grant and contract proposals sponsored by the NIH or by those sponsors that utilize the NIH salary cap; for all other proposals, the total institutional base salary is used.
