The Public Health Service (PHS) scientific misconduct regulation, 42

CFR 50 Subpart A, "Responsibilities of PHS Awardee and Applicant

Institutions for Dealing With and Reporting Possible Misconduct in

Science," requires each institution to make an annual report to the

Office of Scientific Integrity (OSI) on the handling of allegations,

inquiries and investigations into possible scientific misconduct in

connection with research for which PHS funds have been requested or

received and an annual update of the institutional assurance.


The official forms for the 1991 annual report were mailed by the OSI in

October 1991 to the institutional official of each institution that

filed an assurance with OSI for 1990-91.  The completed form should

have been returned to the OSI no later than January 15, 1992.  OSI

staff will review and use the form to update the PHS assurance files.

An updated, active assurance is required for any institution to be

eligible to apply for and/or receive PHS grants, fellowships, and

cooperative agreements for research during calendar year 1992.
