Joint Association Letter to the U.S. House Science Committee

The Association of American Universities (AAU) and several other major higher education associations submitted a letter to the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee in response to a May 24, 2017 joint hearing held by the Research & Technology and Oversight Subcommittees on the topic of facilities and administrative costs.

"F&A expenses are a fundamental and inseparable part of the costs of doing research," the letter said. "A cap, such as the one the administration has proposed for NIH grants, would result in real cuts to high-priority research aimed at finding new cures, improving health, and growing the economy."
