Research Community Letter to OMB Director Mulvaney and HHS Secretary Price on Facilities and Administrative Costs Reimbursements

On August 21, 2017, AAU joined 108 national research organizations to oppose the cuts to NIH funding and facilities and administrative (F&A) reimbursements in the Administration's FY18 budget. The letter, sent to Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney and Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, stressed the importance of current F&A reimbursement practice stating, "a cut to F&A reimbursements is a cut to biomedical research and would diminish the ability of researchers to conduct critical research."
