The National Institutes of Health (NIH), in consultation with the Department of Health and Human Services and other federal agencies, has revised the requirements for including clinical practice compensation (CPC) within institutional base salary (IBS) costs charged to NIH grants for investigators receiving compensation from the institution (grantee/contractor) and separately organized clinical practice plans.
The criteria require the IBS not vary by specific clinical services provided by the investigator within the periods for which total IBS is certified by the institution.
The revised requirements support conformance with applicable federal cost principles and other limitations, such as the legislative salary cap, to ensure consistency in compensation across the institution regardless of the source of support.
CPC may be included in the IBS budgeted and charged to NIH sponsored agreements if all of the following criteria are met:
*Set by the institution means the grantee/contractor institution must be able to document and certify the specified amount of CPC is being paid in essentially the same manner as other specified amounts of the committed IBS (compensation) of the investigator.
