Over the past few years the Federal government has become increasingly concerned with protecting information and technology from disclosure by universities, the release of which could compromise our economic vitality or contribute to the military potential of U.S. international adversaries. Export laws and regulations promulgated by the U.S. Department of Commerce, the U.S. Department of State and the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control are the bases for restricting use and access to this information and technology. Because these laws may conflict with our tradition of academic freedom and openness in research and impose severe criminal and civil fines for noncompliance, it is important that all persons involved in sponsored research understand the regulations and implementation requirements.
