Federal Grants Compliance and Export Control Training

Posted in Announcement  |  Tagged

Dear Colleagues:

As the University seeks to grow its research enterprise and foster a productive and supportive environment for researchers and scholars, we are offering a second round of training sessions specifically for faculty regarding certain federal requirements related to research and to international projects in general. In this changing regulatory environment, we want to make sure that faculty have up-to-date information regarding these requirements and we will use real life examples involving Georgetown projects.

These sessions will be useful to you if you have the following:

  • federal grant or contract funding;
  • projects that involve international travel or activities, e.g., attending conferences in, collaborating with scholars or paying subcontractors, human subjects, or translators in embargoed or sanctioned countries like Cuba, Iran, etc.;
  • projects involving potentially controlled or restricted information, software or technology, regardless of funding source, e.g., gaining access to controlled unclassified information on a federal project or proprietary information from an industrial sponsor.

If your projects involve any of the above, please join us at one of the following faculty sessions:

  • Monday, 9/11, 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m., 651 ICC
  • Wednesday, 9/13, 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m., SW 107 Med-Dent Building
  • Thursday, 9/14, 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m., 651 ICC

Please note that these sessions are identical to the sessions that were offered in April so faculty who attended previously do not need to attend again.

We appreciate your cooperation in fostering a compliant research and scholarly environment as we grow and strengthen the research enterprise.
