Dear All:

Please see attached the good news from MEDI regarding our allocation for 2012-2013: we will be receiving the $1,511,777 that we requested.

Just to recap, the Ministry recently implemented a cap on all Ontario Research Funds. They are now requesting "an accurate and up-to-date forecast."  In preparing these forecasts there are a few things to note:

1.      At this point it is essential that the forecasts for this current fiscal year and next fiscal year be as accurate as possible.

2.      These forecasts will also be used to begin discussions of notional allocations for next fiscal year (2013/14). The program cap will remain at approximately the same annual level for the immediate future and you will most likely not see a significant change in your institutional allocation in the upcoming years.

In order to meet our planning deadlines, we require these forecasts as soon as possible or by Friday, October 12 at the latest.

We will be following up with you all very shortly regarding your forecasts. Please note that the CFI portion of our funding has not changed, and that we need to look at spending 100% of the forecasted amount not just the MEDI portion.  It is absolutely essential that we meet this allocation considering no carry over will be allowed. In preparing your forecast, please do not overstate the forecast.
