On October 7 the NIH issued a notice about how it will operate under the current continuing funding resolution, which funds government operations through November 18 at the FY 2011 level minus 1.5 percent. According to NIH, "Until FY 2012 appropriations are enacted, NIH will issue non-competing research grant awards at a level below that indicated on the most recent Notice of Award (generally up to 90% of the previously committed level). This is consistent with our practice during the CRs of FY 2006 - 2011. Upward adjustments to awarded levels will be considered after our FY 2012 appropriations are enacted but NIH expects institutions to monitor their expenditures carefully during this period."
