COGR's Survey on Experiences with DoD on Fundamental Research Determinations

COGR is surveying its membership on institutional experiences on obtaining fundamental research determinations from DOD in DOD-funded projects.  DFARS clause 252.204--7000(a)(3) sets forth a procedure for obtaining such determinations.

The survey is being conducted in response to a request from DOD for detailed information regarding institutions’ experiences.  A listening session is planned next month for COGR representatives to discuss survey results with DOD officials.

FDP is planning to update its troublesome clauses database by also conducting a survey that will obtain information at a more granular project level on institutions’ experiences. Hopefully, the results of both surveys will be available for the session.

Thank you in advance for completing this survey.  Please submit only one response per institution.  For ease of review, we are including the survey in a Word document (attached), but please be sure to submit your answers through the online portal below.  When you have submitted your survey, you will be emailed a copy of your survey answers from our survey provider, Alchemer.

Please submit your survey answers by Wednesday, February 24, and contact Toni Russo at if you have any questions.
