Broadcast 3:

Topic: Export Controls and Other Security Concerns
Date: Thursday December 6, 2012
Time: 9:00 am (122 minutes run time)
Location: The College of Health Professions Building A Room 207

Target Audience: Departmental, Pre-Award, Research Compliance Administrators, Faculty
This program would cover export controls and national security concerns applicable to research at those universities that may not have a skilled or dedicated export control officer or export control compliance office. The session will address export control issues and their applicability in the everyday life of the pre-award research administrator (proposal review, award negotiations), department administrator (field research trips, foreign travel, shipments), and faculty members (conferences, meetings, sharing of data/etc). The session will also include a discussion of other national security issues (e.g., security plans, access to classified information) that may arise in contract negotiations. How to “start from the very basics” in building an internal export control management plan, training, etc. will be included.

The Obama Administration’s new export control reform initiatives and their affect on universities are be discussed. This session will not review the licensing process, as its focus will be to provide an overview of how export control and national security regulations apply to academic institutions.

Panel: Elizabeth Peloso, Director, Export Compliance, University of Pennsylvania; Lisa Mosley, Director of Research Advancement, Arizona State University; Ajay Kuntamukkala, Partner, Hogan Lovells
Moderator: Randall Draper, Director, Office of Contracts and Grants, University of Colorado at Boulder
