Technology Control Plans

A Technology Control Plan (TCP) is required for all research which receives data, material, or technology controlled by the ITAR or otherwise falls outside the Fundamental Research Exclusion (FRE).   The TCP shall include a physical and information security plan, personnel screening procedures and a process for using and storing the information in a controlled environment.

All TCPs are developed by the Export Controls Officer with coordination from the faculty and staff involved in the research project.

Export Control training must be completed by every individual on a project with a TCP, including PI & students, before working on the project.  In addition, all members of the research team will be required to read, understand, and sign the TCP before the project can begin.
