The recipient must also provide: • A description of the finding/ determination and action(s) taken, if any; and/or • The reason(s) for, and conditions of placement of the PI or any Co-I on administrative action or administrative leave. The recipient, at any time, may propose a substitute investigator if it determines the PI or any Co-I may not be able to carry out the funded project or activity and/or abide by the award terms and conditions. In reviewing the report, NASA will consider, at a minimum, the following factors: a. The safety and security of personnel supported by the NASA award; b. The overall impact to the NASAfunded activity; c. The continued advancement of taxpayer-funded investments in science and scientists; and d. Whether the recipient has taken appropriate action(s) to ensure the continuity of science and that continued progress under the funded project can be made. (f) Upon receipt and review of the information provided in the report, NASA will consult with the AOR, or designee. Based on the results of this review and consultation, the Agency may, if necessary and in accordance with 2 CFR 200.338, assert its programmatic stewardship responsibilities and oversight authority to initiate the substitution or removal of the PI or any Co-I, reduce the award funding amount, or where neither of those previous options is available or adequate, to suspend or terminate the award. Other personnel supported by a NASA award must likewise remain in full compliance with the recipient’s policies or codes of conduct, statutes, regulations, or executive orders relating to sexual harassment, other forms of harassment, or sexual assault. With regard to any personnel not in compliance, the recipient must make appropriate arrangements to ensure the safety and security of other award personnel and the continued progress of the funded project. Notification of these actions is not required under this term and condition. End of Proposed Term and Condition Implementation: Upon receipt and resolution of all comments, it is NASA’s intention to implement the new term through revision of the NASA Agency VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:05 Jul 16, 2019 Jkt 247001 Specific Requirements to the Research Terms and Conditions, the Grant General Conditions, and the Cooperative Agreement—Financial and Administrative Terms and Conditions. These revised terms and conditions will become effective thirty days from the date of publication in the Federal Register and will be available in the NASA Grants and Cooperative Agreement Manual (GCAM). The new term and condition will be applied to all new NASA awards and funding amendments to existing awards made on or after the effective date. This new reporting requirement will apply to all findings/determinations that occur on or after the effective date of the terms and conditions. With regard to notification of placement on administrative leave, the recipient must notify NASA within seven business days from the date the recipient determines that placement on administrative leave is necessary. Recipients are strongly encouraged to conduct a thorough review of the term and condition to determine whether the new reporting requirements necessitate any changes to the institution’s policies and procedures. The new term and condition will be effective for any new award, or funding amendment to an existing award, made on or after the effective date. For these purposes, this means that any finding/determination, placement on administrative leave or the imposition of any administrative action by the institution made on or after the start date of an award or funding amendment subject to the new term will invoke the new reporting requirements.
