Statute, Rules and Grant Policies Guide
CURRENT RULEMAKING PROJECT
At its August 17, 2016, meeting, the Oversight Committee approved the release of proposed changes to existing and new agency rules.
CPRIT completed an extensive revision to its administrative rules earlier this year to align agency policies and practices with CPRIT’s administrative rules. CPRIT has identified some rule provisions that would benefit from additional clarity. The proposed amendments affect Texas Administrative Code Chapters 701, 702, and 703.
There are 54 proposed rule changes affecting the grant application review, award and monitoring processes. Many of the proposed changes clarify existing rules or codify procedures already used by CPRIT. The proposed changes should be published in the September 2, 2016 edition of the Texas Register. Written comments may be submitted through October 3, 2016, to CPRIT’s General Counsel, Kristen Doyle, by fax (512/475-2563); by email (firstname.lastname@example.org); or by mail to the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas, P.O. Box 12097, ATTN: Rulemaking Project, Austin, Texas, 78711.
The Oversight Committee expects to consider final orders that reflect the comments received on the proposed rules and any recommended changes at their meeting on November 16, 2016.
