Annual Report for Fiscal Year 2016

Annual Report for Fiscal Year 2016


NTP relies on voluntary allocations from the three core agencies, NIEHS, FDA/NCTR, and NIOSH, to support its activities. These allocations are specified after annual appropriations have been determined. As shown in the figure, the total NTP budget for FY 2016 was $131.0 million.

NTP conducts its research studies through contract laboratories, in-house at the three core agencies, or through interagency agreements with other agencies. In FY 2016, NIEHS funded 30 contracts, listed in the table below, held three workshops, three special emphasis panel peer-review meetings, and one scientific advisory meetings for NTP. There may be additional contracts at the other agencies that support some of their voluntary NTP efforts.
