Letter from Deborah L. Crawford, Ph.D., to Mason Researchers

Concerning Federal “Controlled Unclassified Information” Regulations

Dear Colleague,

I want to make you aware of new government regulations around the safeguarding of controlled unclassified information, commonly known as CUI.  As a recipient of federal funding Mason is responsible for complying with CUI regulations, which requires close collaboration and coordination among various administrative offices, academic units and faculty.  While the Department of Defense is the first and only federal agency to implement a final CUI regulation, effective January 1, 2018, we expect that other federal agencies will follow suit in the coming months.
