* Full cost data for the measures under each performance program area are shown as non-adds. The sum of full costs of performance measures does not equal the full cost of the performance program area, as NIH utilizes a representative sampling approach to report on program performance progress. Representative goals serve as proxies for performance of the larger research portfolio for each of the functional areas. Methodology for Full Cost NIH does not have an account or collection of accounts dedicated to program management. To allocate costs for program management, we selected the Research Management and Support (RMS) line item from the NIH mechanism display and Office of the Director Operations, a line item in the appropriation for the Office of the Director. Although these lines support some activities in addition to program management, they represent the majority of NIH program management activities. These totals were reduced by the direct costs of the performance goals that are funded through RMS or OD operations. This calculated level for Program Management was allocated across GPRA goals and the unsampled program on a pro-rata basis. The funding amounts devoted to each goal are included in the Program Performance Tables.
