Extramural vs Intramural and RMS Funding
The NCI Budget has decreased by $105.6 million—or 2.1%—since 2011. For most extramural activities, funding has decreased, particularly for SPOREs and Other P50s/P20s. There has been a slight increase in extramural funding for NRSA, R&D Contracts, and Buildings and Facilities between FY 2011 and FY 2015. During this time, intramural research funding has increased to comprise 17% of the total NCI budget, but Research Management and Support (RMS) has decreased.
The following is a comparison broken out by mechanism and total between Extramural dollars spent vs Intramural and RMS.
