Current Rulemaking Project
At its May 15, 2019, meeting, the Oversight Committee approved the release of proposed changes to existing agency rules.
The proposed amendments affect Texas Administrative Code §§ 703.3, 703.10, 703.14, and 703.25. In § 703.3(b), the proposed change clarifies that modifications to Request for Applications (RFAs) will be available on CPRIT’s website. The amendment to § 703.10(c)(22) requires a grant recipient to request approval for a Principal Investigator, Program Director, or Company Representative’s temporary leave of absence. Proposed changes to § 703.14(c)(3) eliminate automatic approval of a grant recipient’s first no cost extension request. Finally, the amendment to § 703.25(e) clarifies when a grant recipient’s budget change or transfer is automatically approved and states CPRIT may review and reverse approval, depending on certain circumstances.
The proposed changes will be published in the May 31, 2019, edition of the Texas Register. Written comments may be submitted through July 1, 2019, to CPRIT’s General Counsel, Kristen Doyle, by fax (512-475-2563); by email (email@example.com); 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 August 21, 2019.
