COGR Matrix of Science & Security Laws, Regulations, and Policies

COGR has developed a comprehensive chart that summarizes and compares federal laws, regulations, and policies in the area of science and security.  The chart is divided into three separate tabs that cover (a) major federal-wide legislation or policy (e.g., National Presidential Security Memorandum 33, CHIPS and Science Act of 2022); (b) agency disclosure requirements for researchers and research institutions; and (c) agency conflict of interest policies.  The chart will be updated as new laws, policy and guidance are published. This new chart supersedes the matrix released in November 2023 (V.3)  but continues to be accessible below for reference purposes only.

For questions regarding the comparison chart please contact Kris West ( or Krystal Toups (
