Use of the Grant

The remuneration of staff is governed by the provisions that apply to the institution where the staff is employed. All salaries paid by Subrecipient are capped at the rate of US federal Executive Level II (see Subaward Attachment 2, Special terms and conditions).

However, if the Subaward is used to cover expenditure on staff or expenditure for general administrative purposes and if the total expenditure by the Subrecipient is covered mainly with German public funding, the Subrecipient may not pay their employees at a higher rate than is paid to comparable German federal employees. Higher remuneration than the rates of the Collective Agreement for the Public Service (TVöD) and other payments above or outside collectively agreed rates may not be given in this case.
