Proposal Management: Request Export Control Review


If the Project Team answers either "Yes" or "Unsure" to the Proposal Approval Form (PAF) question, “Does the research project involve classified research or possible export controls?”, an export control review will automatically be requested. 

The Project Representative (PR) can view the Project Team’s responses to questions using Manage Factors. If the Project Team response to the PAF Export Controls question is "No", the Project Representative (PR) may still Request Export Control Review based on their review of the PAF and other applicable factors.
