The National Science and Technology Council’s Research Business Models Interagency Working Group issued the new Research Terms and Conditions (RTCs) on March 14, 2017, which are intended to implement the Uniform Guidance (2 CFR 200) and are now available for use by federal agencies when issuing research awards. When are the RTCs effective? Which agencies will use them? Which agencies have already implemented them? How do I tell if the RTCs apply to an award I have received? Do the RTCs implement any prior approvals or restrictions relative to the Uniform Guidance? How do the RTCs apply to subawards my institution issues? Will participating agencies issue their own implementations of the RTCs, as they did with the previous version? Speakers: Cindy Hope, Assistant Vice President for Research and Director of the Office for Sponsored Programs, University of Alabama;David Mayo, Director of Sponsored Research, California Institute of Technology; Jean Feldman, Head, Policy Office, Office of Budget, Finance & Award Management, National Science Foundation; Michelle Bulls, Director, Office of Policy for Extramural Research Administration, OPERA, National Institutes of Health
