My wife will help work on my research this year, and I plan to pay several months of her salary using grant funds. Do my proposed budget and budget justification constitute adequate notification?

No. You must also fill out a Family Relationship Disclosure form and a Significant Financial Disclosure form and submit both forms with your blue sheet, following this procedure.
