An Overview of the New Research Terms and Conditions

90 Minutes: On March 14, 2017, the National Science and Technology Council’s Research Business Models Interagency Working Group issued the new Research Terms and Conditions (RTCs), which are intended to implement the Uniform Guidance (2 CFR 200) and which 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?

Please join us for an informative session in which we will answer these questions.
