“FEDERAL POLICY, RESEARCH REGULATION, AND THE BEST IN THE WORLD”
We will open the Institute with a discussion on how federal policies and regulations intersect and impact the research being conducted at colleges, universities, and nonprofit research institutions across the country. Implementation of the Procurement Standards contained in 2 CFR 200.317-326 (i.e., the Uniform Guidance) is a great example of how a new administrative requirement can have ripple affects all the way down to the laboratories in which research is being performed. Unfortunately, examples such as the Procurement Standards may be the norm, rather than the exception. Other examples will be shared during the discussion and we will conclude by pondering the bigger question: Will the U.S. research model, which has made us the world leader for the past 75 years, continue to be the model other countries aspire to?
