The Missouri University of Science and Technology compliance program encompasses faculty, staff, and students who engage in research as well as many administrative components. The Office of Sponsored Programs serves as the coordinating compliance office for externally funded research and sponsored projects. It is the responsibility of the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) to provide the interface between the various components to ensure research is conducted with integrity and in compliance with all applicable regulations.
Compliance by individuals with policies is critical to institutional accountability. Policy compliance at Missouri S&T may be addressed through many avenues. To manage compliance within the following areas, four campus committees were created which can be reached through the following links.
This committee, also called IACUC, oversees use of the S&T research animals and facilities.
The COI assists campus members with declaring and addressing any conflicts of interest.
The EHS department assists campus members with environmental safety.
The IBC reviews any proposed campus research involving recombinant DNA, synthetic nucleic acids, or other biohazardous materials.
Guidance regarding the types of relationships and activities that researchers are expected to disclose to their sponsors and/or to the University.
S&T Administration as well as all researchers have the burden of knowing what information is export controlled during the course of collaborative research, understanding the limitations of exclusions such as fundamental research, and understanding what activities might be export controlled.
