Export controls are a set of federal regulations that prohibit unlicensed/unauthorized export of certain information, technologies, items and commodities to anyone overseas including U.S. citizens, as well as to foreign nationals on U.S. soil (deemed export). Export controls may impose access, dissemination, and participation restrictions on information and tangible items.
The University of Louisiana at Monroe (ULM) is fully committed to the highest level of compliance with applicable export control laws and regulations, including those implemented by the Department of Commerce through its Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and the Department of State through its International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) as well as those imposed by the Treasury Department through its Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).
Nevertheless, ULM is a state controlled institution of higher education that conducts fundamental research in basic and applied sciences. This research is widely and openly published and made available to the scientific and academic community. ULM does not undertake classified work or research requiring national security controls. Based on the University's mission to educate through research as well as federal laws prohibiting discrimination based on nationality, country of origin, ethnicity, race, gender, or religion, ULM can not accept any conditions of an award that would restrict any members of the ULM community including faculty, staff and students, from the ability to participate fully in all intellectually significant portions of a project.
Penalties for non-compliance with ALL applicable export control laws are severe and will have a lasting impact on both the researcher and the university. Any export control issue related to research being performed at ULM must be immediately directed to the Office of Sponsored Programs and Research (OSPR).
