NCAF is applied to all line items in the proposal whether they are for labor, ODCs, Direct Materials, Incentive Fee, Fixed Fee, Award Fee, or other (total proposal amount). Reference NIH Contract Access Fee and Fee Remittance in your contract. Per the contract, the contractor shall include the NCAF as a separate Contract Line Item Number (CLIN) in all contractor proposals to the government, regardless of pricing arrangements used.

Reference NIH Contract Access Fee and Fee Remittance in your contract.
