Operating Under a Continuing Resolution and Sequestration


At this time, we are continuing to fund noncompeting grants at 90%, which is consistent with our practice during the continuing resolutions of fiscal years 2006-2012. We are taking a conservative approach to funding competing awards until we have a budget for the rest of the year. This may occur through another continuing resolution or an appropriations bill.

When we have more information about the budgetary outlook for the remainder of Fiscal Year 2013, I will share our funding plans. I want to assure you that we are working very hard to minimize the impact on our ability to fund grants.

For more information about NIH operations under the sequester, see the blog post from NIH’s Sally Rockey and a letter to grantee institutions about the potential impact of this budget reduction.

  1. Just wonder when the payline for FY2013 will be out. Is it going to be significantly different from that of 2012?

  2. We are still waiting for the Department of Health and Human Services and the Office of Management and Budget to approve NIH’s budget, so we do not yet know what the payline will be. We expect our success rate to be somewhat lower than it was in Fiscal Year 2012.
