FY13 President’s Budget Request

The FY 2013 President’s Budget Request for the National Children’s Study is $165.000 million, a
$28.098 million or 14.55 percent decrease from the FY 2012 Enacted level. NIH is evaluating alternative sampling approaches that will reduce costs by building on existing infrastructure, and streamlining administrative components. In FY 2013, the Vanguard Study will continue and the Main Study will begin. As the pilot for the Main Study, the Vanguard Study will continue to anticipate each phase of the Main Study, providing reliable field data to inform Main Study methods, operations, and costs. In FY 2013, the Vanguard Study will experience a reduced level of effort compared to its previous, resource-intensive recruitment phase. It will test retention strategies and other procedures to help ensure that the Main Study includes a diverse selection of participants and to verify that the methods and measures used in the Main Study are feasible, acceptable to participants (critical for retention), and cost effective. In FY 2013, implementation of Main Study activities will begin, with a protocol designed with components based on findings from the Vanguard Study.
