Inflation Rate Increases and Modular Budgets

Please note that, according to NIH policy, the salary cap in place during the application year of a project with a modular budget remains for the life of the non-competing cycle/project period. The number of modules originally requested should then also remain the same, and any modular level variations must be explicitly justified by the applicant.

Put simply NIH will not consider the inclusion of additional modules for the sole purpose of inflationary increases.

Please reach out to your OSP specialist with any questions or concerns.
