W&M values an open intellectual culture where collaboration is encouraged across disciplines, institutions, and the world. Strong international collaborations keep us globally competitive and promote advancements in science and our ability to address critical societal issues.
However, in order to safeguard their research, and protect themselves, W&M Researchers should understand the current regulatory landscape. In an effort to increase oversight and protect U.S. research investments, Federal agencies are increasing requirements for principal investigators (PIs) to disclose international sources of support and to disclose how those sources are being used to support the proposed and related research.
The guidance below has been prepared by the Offices of the Vice Provost for Research, Sponsored Programs, Technology Transfer, and the Reves Center for International Studies.*
*We are grateful for the generosity of our colleagues at the University of Virginia, and members of the Council on Governmental Relations for sharing policies, practices, tools, and resources in use on their campuses.
