Tele-work Policies and Guidelines

The Massachusetts General Hospital has provided policies and guidelines for employees who are tele-working.

Notice Issued by National Institutes of Health (NIH)

The ORC would like to bring your attention to a change in NIH policy on the funding of salaries of postdoctoral trainees supported on NRSA awards (including T32s and F awards). A 2017 notice posted by the NIH now allows supplementation of stipends on NRSA awards for the equivalent of up to 10 hours per week. Allowable sources of funds for supplementation include federal funds. This may open up options for supplementing salaries of trainees supported on T32 and F32 grants. This has been an issue specifically for individuals in clinical fellowship programs who move onto T32 support for research years, but also applies to others supported on these awards. (See NIH Grants Policy Statement, Section and, for more details.)
