As previously announced, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has published updated information regarding the Fiscal Year 15 salary limitation under NIH Notice NOT-OD-15-049

Following our normal practice, UCSF will use an effective date of Feb. 1, 2015, (beginning of the first full calendar month) for payroll processing using the new salary cap. The Payroll and Personnel System (PPS) and online faculty payroll system, Magical PAF Machine (MPM), have already been adjusted to allow for the increased salary cap on Feb. 1.  

For actions that cannot be processed in the MPM, please use the appropriate FSC worksheet which includes the new NIH Salary Cap 24. For most faculty salaries outside of MPM this worksheet should be used. For the few faculty members who were deemed ineligible to receive last year’s range adjustment, please use this worksheet ("INELIGIBLE FACULTY").

If you wish to use the new cap on existing awards, please submit your changes to your HR generalist by the Feb. 17 processing deadline to avoid payroll expense transfers (PETs) for February.
