Committee on Federal Research Regulations and Reporting Requirements: A New Framework for Research Universities in the 21st Century
The second meeting of the Committee on Federal Research Regulations and Reporting Requirements: A New Framework for Research Universities in the 21st Century was held on April 16-17, 2015 at the National Academies' Keck Center in Washington, DC.
The committee is conducting a study of federal regulations and reporting requirements with specific attention to those directed at research universities. In conducting its analyses the committee will be aware of (a) the context and intended benefits and circumstances under which a particular regulation was issued and may have evolved, and (b) whether those contexts or circumstances still remain of public concern. The committee will develop a new framework for federal regulation of research universities in the 21st century that addresses the needs of Congress, federal agencies, and the broader public while advancing to the maximum extent feasible the missions of research universities.
The next meeting of the committee will take place on May 28-29, 2015 in San Francisco, CA.
