Roundtable Session - PI Dashboard Update
Thursday, March 23rd, 2017We will address two topics at this month's meeting:
9:30 - 10:30 AM
Plant Science Building, Room 404
Research Status Email to be sent to Investigators Monthly
We will be starting a phased rollout of monthly research summary emails shortly. These emails will include labor distribution information and research project burn graphs.
Projections Being Added to PI Dashboard
We have chosen not to show KDW encumbrance data in the PI Dashboard because they often reflects misleading information, particularly for research labor. We are at the early stages of addressing this limitation. This will require new data entry practices for RAs and new functionality in the PI Dashboard. Learn more
Lunchtime Panel: Beyond NIH and NSF: Writing successful proposals for NASA and DOE funding
Friday March 24th, 2017Did you know that Cornell's federal research expenditure is around $425million. The "big two" funding agencies, NIH and NSF account for 75% of that total.

- Change to NIH Salary Cap - Effective January 10, 2016
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) salary cap for the year beginning January 10, 2016 has been established at $185,100.
This applies to all awards directly from the NIH and from pass-through entities (subcontracts). The announcement may be found at NIH Notice. This translates to a rate cap of $138,825 for individuals on a nine-month salary. All campus instances where individuals are affected by the cap must result in an appropriate amount of institutional co-funding via a cost sharing subaccount.
For further information please see the presentation at NIH Salary Cap or contact Cost and Capital Assets (firstname.lastname@example.org) and/or OSP (email@example.com) for assistance.

- Uniform Guidance
Effective December 26, 2014, new federal awards are subject to the Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles and Audit Requirement for Federal Awards (2 CFR 200). Existing awards may also be subject to the new requirements as new increments are released. The Uniform Guidance combines and consolidates 8 existing Circulars, including A-21, A-110 and A-133.
Cornell University has set up a University-wide Uniform Guidance Task Force to keep the Cornell research community informed about changes that will affect the work of PIs, researchers, administrators and others involved in sponsored projects. In addition, a webpage has been established to provide information and updates on the Uniform Guidance implementation and will be regularly updated as new material becomes available. For more information go to: Uniform Guidance.
- Form 10 and related forms have been updated on the Form 10 page. New COI forms have been added to the main Forms page. New guidance documents have been added to the Policies and Procedures page, under "Ethics and Conflicts."
