    Come join our continued conversation on research security. During this webinar, we will discuss recent updates from different agencies, as well as key legislative developments, enforcement activity, and their potential implications for our institutions. Through polling mechanisms, audience members will have an opportunity to share about their experiences managing agency requirements and rolling out or modifying various research security program elements. We will discuss common compliance challenges and explore what steps institutions may consider as they prepare themselves to establish a robust research security program. This session will be facilitated by both institutional leaders from large research institutions as well as outside counsel and higher education consultants.

On Demand Webinars

  • Borrowing from this popular phrase with origins in Southeast Asia, this session will explore the similarities and differences between research administration offices of all sizes whether central or departmental. While our research volumes are drastically different, the workloads, per capita funding for staffing, and stressors are quite similar. Join us as we provide our perspectives from our different vantage points. We will discuss staffing challenges, remote/hybrid workforces, and dealing with last minute proposals along with the challenge of being all things to all people.

  • This session will provide a broad overview of the proposed NSPM-33 program requirements. We will discuss which requirements are least likely to change and which have the greatest potential to change before the final guidance is released. We will host a dialogue about what participants are doing at their own institutions to prepare and where they are holding off. Finally, we will offer some ideas for how to start or keep the conversation going at your home institution.

  • This webinar will explore the internal controls framework for subrecipient monitoring based on federal regulations. By close examination of the rules, this session will break down the requirements (must!") vs. the nice to haves ("should!") and how to create a compliant institutional framework.

  • How do Pre-Award actions affect Post-Award success? This session will incorporate multiple perspectives including those from central offices, departments, and principal investigators, to review common and preventable Post-Award issues and best proactive strategies on how to prevent them in the Pre-Award process.
