Download as PDF khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES 26676 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 87 / Tuesday, May 5, 2020 / Notices ‘‘Agent’’ has its plain and ordinary meaning, indicating that a person, organization, or entity, is acting on behalf of another person, organization, or entity, whether that agency is disclosed or undisclosed. ‘‘Contract’’ has the meaning given at 20 U.S.C. 1011f(h)(1). ‘‘Faculty’’ refers to all teaching positions at the university (including professors of all ranks, teachers, lecturers, and/or researchers whether in a classroom, laboratory, or other educational environment—whether physically or electronically present). ‘‘Foreign source’’ has the meaning given at 20 U.S.C. 1011f(h)(2). ‘‘Gift’’ has the meaning given at 20 U.S.C. 1011f(h)(3). ‘‘Institution’’ has the meaning given at 20 U.S.C. 1011f(h)(4) and for the purposes of this request includes all UT campuses and facilities. Section 117 requires that when an institution receives the benefit of a gift from or a contract with a foreign source in the applicable amount, even if by an agent (e.g., employee) and through an intermediary (e.g., non-profit organization), it must disclose the gift or contract to the Department. Where a legal entity (e.g., centers, boards, foundations, research groups, partnerships, or non-profit organizations, whether or not organized under the laws of the United States and including, by way of example and not limitation, UTMB and GNL) operates substantially for the benefit or under the auspices of an IHE, there is a rebuttable presumption that when that legal entity receives money or enters into a contract with a foreign source, it is for the benefit of the institution, and, thus, must be disclosed. ‘‘Record’’ means all recorded information, regardless of form or characteristics, made or received, and including metadata, such as email and other electronic communication, word processing documents, PDF documents, animations (including PowerPointTM and other similar programs) spreadsheets, databases, calendars, telephone logs, contact manager information, internet usage files, network access information, writings, drawings, graphs, charts, photographs, sound recordings, images, financial statements, checks, wire transfers, accounts, ledgers, facsimiles, texts, animations, voicemail files, data generated by calendaring, task management and personal information management (PIM) software (such as Microsoft Outlook), data created with the use of personal data assistants (PDAs), data created with the use of document management software, data VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:16 May 04, 2020 Jkt 250001 created with the use of paper and electronic mail logging and routing software, and other data or data compilations, stored in any medium from which information can be obtained either directly or, if necessary, after translation by the responding party into a reasonably usable form. The term ‘‘recorded information’’ also includes all traditional forms of records, regardless of physical form or characteristics. ‘‘Restricted or conditional gift or contract’’ has the meaning given at 20 U.S.C. 1011f(h)(5). ‘‘Staff’’ refers to all members of the university involved in administration of the university and its obligations and commitments (including deans of all ranks, administration officials, and support personnel). ‘‘Wuhan MCL’’ refers to the maximum biocontainment laboratory in Wuhan, China, as referenced in GNL documents, and which may also be known as the Wuhan Institute of Virology. If UT asserts attorney-client or attorney-work product privilege for a given record, then it must prepare and submit a privilege log expressly identifying each such record and describing it so the Department may assess the claim’s validity. Please note that no other privileges apply. UT’s record and data preservation obligations are outlined at Exhibit A. Please note that Section 117(f), 20 U.S.C. 1011f(f), provides that whenever it appears an IHE has failed to fully comply with the law, the Secretary of Education may, among other things, request that the Attorney General commence an enforcement action to compel compliance and to recover the full costs to the United States of obtaining compliance, including all associated costs of investigation and enforcement. Please further note there may also be other penalties triggered by the knowing and intentional submission of false reports and/or information. The Department recognizes that the COVID–19 virus may have a significant impact on certain UT operations. Nonetheless, the critical importance of the Department’s investigation into the accuracy of UT’s foreign source reporting with respect to the Wuhan MCL and other Chinese Communist Party-related persons and entities is not diminished. Accordingly, the Department expects UT’s timely response to this investigation. This investigation is being directed by the Department’s Office of the General Counsel.
