Technology Control Plan Review and Annual Compliance Certification

The Office of Export and Secure Research Compliance (OESRC) supports Virginia Tech's commitment to complying with U.S. laws and regulations applicable to export and trade sanctions. OESRC works with the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) and other University departments to ensure compliance with regulations promulgated by the regulatory agencies, including but not limited to the Department of State, Department of Commerce, and the Department of the Treasury.  If an export assessment determines that an activity is subject to these regulations, OESRC will assist the affected party in setting up security measures and protocols needed to ensure compliance with export and sanction regulations through the establishment of a Technology Control Plan (TCP) or other certification document.

The Technology Control Plan details the export control classification, restriction on release of information, physical and information security protocols, and screening, training and acknowledgment requirements from all project personnel.  OESRC will monitor project related activity throughout the life of the TCP and the Principal Investigator or TCP Custodian will be required to disposition all controlled items before close out of the TCP.

If you are a signatory to a TCP, you may view documents, information, and training/acknowledgement status of personnel on the TCP Review website.
