This isn't going to irritate scientists at all. I am now looking at the second mid-course correction on stimulus strategy from our friends in Program land.
By mid-course, naturally, I mean after the applications were already submitted.
The first one was a notification from one IC that administrative supplements would go only to New Investigator awards. Today's note is from an IC warning that their use of administrative supplements will be reduced from initial posture. They will be putting only "limited support" into administrative supplements or some such.
I'm sure PI's who bet on this instead of some other stimulus mechanism are understanding.....
