DOD releases guidance on risk-based security review for fundamental research

In July, the Department of Defense (DOD) issued a  Statement on Countering Unwanted Foreign Influence in DOD Department-Funded Research at institutions of Higher Education.

More recently, the DOD held a webinar with Bindu Nair, director of Basic Research, where she presented on the “Policy for Risk-Based Security Reviews of Fundamental Research.” The slide deck from that webinar communicates what the DOD will be looking for once your proposal has been submitted to the DOD for review, based on their July 20, 2023, policy.

This information should be helpful as you prepare your DOD Grant proposals. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Karen Hecox or any of the WSU Office of Research Support and Operations staff.
