NIH Salary CAP
Since 1990, Congress has legislatively mandated a limitation on the amount of salary that can be paid to individuals funded via NIH grant and cooperative agreement awards. Effective January 8, 2017, the salary cap per year is $187,000. This salary cap is adjusted annually. NIH funds may not be used to pay the salary of an individual at a rate in excess of the applicable annual salary cap.
Principal investigators (PIs) and their department grant administrators (DGAs) should work with their SPS pre-award sponsored projects administrator (SPA) to accurately budget salary in their proposals.
PIs and their DGAs should work with their SPS post-award SPA to accurately document the cost share for the amount of salary above the NIH cap that cannot be charged to the grant. Salary costs over the NIH cap must be charged to a non-federal source. For more on UO cost share documentation process please review Cost Share Reporting and Documentation. For information on UO expense documentation process, please review Expense Approval and Documentation Requirements.
