Current Rulemaking Project
At its February 19, 2020, meeting, the Oversight Committee approved the release of proposed changes to existing agency rules.
The proposed amendments affect Texas Administrative Code §§ 703.11 and 703.23. The proposed change to § 703.11(g) requires Academic Research and Product Development grantees, when applicable, to provide all supporting documentation when the grantee submits a matching compliance certification form to CPRIT. The proposed amendment to § 703.23(a)(6) allows CPRIT to withhold the last 10% of grant award funds from a grantee that is authorized to receive disbursements via advance payment until the grantee has completed the contract close out process and all grant reports have been submitted to and approved by CPRIT.
The proposed changes will be published in the March 13, 2020, edition of the Texas Register. Written comments may be submitted through April 13, 2020, 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 May 20, 2020.
