In most circumstances no salary or fringe benefit payments may be made from NIH grant funds to support Federal employees. While the level of effort required for the research project must be allowed by the employing agency as part of the individuals’ official duties, salary and fringe benefit costs associated with an individual participating in an official capacity as a career, career-conditional, or other Federal employees (civilian or uniformed services) are not allowable.
For more information, please see the NIH Policy Statement https://grants.nih.gov/grants/policy/nihgps_2012/nihgps_ch17.htm
