Export Control - Project Assessment Process Award Setup
Page Updated: August 4th, 2016
- The process will be rolled out in WISPER on June 10th, 2013.
- The federal government has regulations to control the transfer of items, information, data, software and technology to foreign persons and organizations.
- Export licenses are required for items on the Commerce Control List (CCL, 15 CFR 774) and the US Munitions List (ITAR, 22 CFR 120-130). Ex: pathogenic biological agents, satellite technology, encryption software, focal plane arrays.
- A license may also be necessary if a foreign person is working on a project in the US or receives controlled information within the US. This is called as a "deemed export." The requirements for deemed export vary depending on the type of project and the country of origin of the foreign person(s).
- Under the WISPER General Tab you will find a new question: Does the project involve research or services in a scientific, engineering or technology field?
- "No" = Done with export control assessment
- "Yes" = Answer follow up questions on the Projects Tab, if project is awarded
- If yes, you will have to answer two additional questions:
- Does the project include Controlled Technology?
- Is an Export or Deemed Export planned as part of this project?
- If "Yes" to both questions, complete the Export Control Assessment form
- The Export Control Assessment (ECA) is a form with 9 yes or no questions to determine if an export license will be needed.
- The Export Control Assessment is located here.
- It is the PI's responsibility to complete the ECA and then forward it to the Export Control Office for review.
- If you are unsure about the WISPER questions and/or the ECA you can request an Export Control Approval under the Approvals tab. This will be sent to the Export Control Office.
Note: Answering "Yes" to any of the WISPER questions will not prevent you from submitting a proposal or setting up an award.
