At its August 16, 2017, meeting, the Oversight Committee approved the release of proposed changes to existing agency rules.

The proposed amendment to § 703.26 prohibits a grantee from paying a subcontractor if the subcontractor employs a relative of the grantee, unless an exception is approved.

The proposed changes were published in the September 1, 2017, edition of the Texas Register.  Written comments may be submitted through October 2, 2017, to CPRIT’s General Counsel, Kristen Doyle, by fax (512/475-2563); by email (; or by mail to the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas, P.O.
