NIH Releases Updated Guidance on Salary Limitation for FY2020

Thursday, Feb 6, 2020

The National Institutes of Health has issued its annual notice regarding Executive Level II pay scale. Effective January 5, 2020, the salary limitation for EL II is $197,300. 

For awards issued in those years that were restricted to previous Executive Level II limitations, including competing awards already issued in FY2020, if adequate funds are available in active awards, and if the salary cap increase is consistent with the institutional base salary, grantees may rebudget funds to accommodate the current Executive Level II salary level.
