Summer Salary Exceeding the NIH or CPRIT Salary Cap

Additionally, the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT) has a provision limiting (capping) the direct salary an individual may receive under a CPRIT grant. The current rate is $200,000 based on 100% effort.

Faculty with NIH or CPRIT funding should request consideration of coverage for the portion of salary over the respective caps by 5:00 PM on Friday, April 4, 2014. Requests should be made on the following form and submitted to:

Jason Richter, Associate Director
Office of Sponsored Projects

The University support is intended to cover summer salary for faculty only during the period of time they are appointed to an NIH or CPRIT funded account. Should circumstances change that results in a reduction of an appointment to an NIH or CPRIT funded account subsequent to a request and approval for coverage, the Principal Investigator is responsible for making the corresponding reductions to the appointment related to the institutional coverage.

Should circumstances change that results in an increase of their appointment to an NIH or CPRIT funded account subsequent to a request and approval for coverage, the Principal Investigator is responsible for making an additional request for coverage. The additional request is not guaranteed and will be considered based on available institutional funds.

Should you have questions regarding this process, please feel free to contact effort@austin.utexas.edu.
