Proposal Management: Requested Technology Control Plans (TCP) Changes


After routing the TCP to the Export Control Office (ECO), they will review it and determine if changes are needed. If a change is needed, the PI/Project Team will need to respond to the requested changes. This procedure contains instructions for making or declining changes requested by the ECO, PI/Project Team, IT Manager(s), or Unit Reviewers.

The PI and Project Team members will receive an email requesting changes.

  • The TCP may be in one of the following states:
    • IT Manager Review – Personnel Making Changes
    • Unit Review – Personnel Making Changes
    • ECO Review – Personnel Making Changes
    • Research Personnel Signoff - Personnel Making Changes
  • After changes are made or declined and all Research Personnel and IT Manager(s) have signed, then the TCP is automatically routed to the Unit Reviewer
