5/31/14 eBridge Funding Proposal Update

Modular Offset

The May 31st, 2014, eBridge production patch includes an enhancement to the Modular Offset functionality. This change allows users to view more readily that they have exceeded the modular maximum limit ($250,000).  When entering NIH Modular Budgets into eBridge, the term "OVER" will display when the Total Direct minus Subcontract F&A exceeds the maximum module level of $250,000.  This warning appears in two places:

  • Page AH, Modular Offset.
  • In the Budget Summary area at the top of each Budget Grid page.

This new warning is specifically designed for Modular Budgets with the $250,000 maximum. eBridge will NOT display "OVER" if the NIH opportunity has a modular limitation that is less than $250,000, such as for a R03 or R21 budget.  To understand the modular limits for specific application types, please consult the RFA/RFP instructions for the specific NIH opportunity to which you are applying.
