Grant and Compliance Considerations:

Foreign Support:

Investigators are responsible for including sources of foreign support consistent with the agency’s requirements in sponsored projects documents. Reporting of foreign gifts and contracts must follow UW System Policy.


  • The Office of Sponsored Programs can assist faculty and staff with the review process and execution of international research agreements. To request the review of an agreement, please fill out the Agreement Review Request Form (link to Agreements Page)
  • Researchers wishing to send tangible research materials to collaborators outside of the United States, should consult with the Office of Sponsored Programs to determine if a Material Transfer Agreement is required.
  • All agreements must be signed by someone with authority to sign on behalf of UW Oshkosh.
  • Service contracts (fee-for service) are overseen by the Office of Finance and Administration.

Export Control:

  • Federal export regulations govern shipments and release of certain commodities, technologies, and software to Non-U.S. locations or persons. Individuals conducting research projects should become familiar with U.S. export control regulations related to international shipments, travel, use of technology, and interactions with restricted parties.
  • Researchers wishing to import or export biological materials should consult with the Institutional Biosafety Committee: Training and special permits may be required for the shipments.
