OPEN SESSION FOR PUBLIC COMMENT
Members of the Public will be invited to provide input regarding proposed Amendments to the Grants Administration Policy for Academic and Non-Profit Institutions, California Code of Regulations, Title 17, Division 4, Chapter 5, Section 100500.
The mission of CIRM is to foster and promote stem cell research with the aim of developing life-saving regenerative medical treatments and therapies.
The Grants Administration Policy for Academic and Non-Profit Institutions (“Non- Profit GAP”) serves as the terms and conditions for grant awards issued by CIRM and carries the force and effect of law. In addition, it provides guidance to Investigators, Grantee Institutions, and other recipients of CIRM funding on their responsibilities as CIRM grantees. The proposed amendments are both technical and substantive and reflect the experience of CIRM Staff and Grantees over the past two years.
The proposed amendments can be viewed in red line format by following this link - http://www.cirm.ca.gov/reg/pdf/Reg100500 notice.pdf or in clean format by following this link - http://www.cirm.ca.gov/reg/pdf/Amended Non-Profit GAP Policy clean.pdf.
Substantive changes are noted on the redline version.
CIRM seeks input from Non-Profit entities, Academic Institutions, For-Profit entities and the public regarding these proposed amendments as well as the need for any additional amendments to the regulation.
The current Non-Profit GAP regulation can be found on the CIRM website at http://www.cirm.ca.gov/reg/pdf/Reg100500 GAP policy.pdf.
