In order that appointed personnel may compete for contracts, agreements, or grants with other countries, the Vice President for Research shall publish opportunities in Research Review and on the Research Support Office web site. Each announcement shall include the foreign country and agency involved, the University administrative unit in charge of the project, and the subject area. No hiring, contracting for, or assigning of personnel to a project, other than the project's principal or co-principal investigators, may be done for at least thirty (30) days after publication of such information.

If circumstances do not permit the use of the standard notification procedures described above, such as when a project must be undertaken within one month of the initial contact by a foreign agency, the University administrators in charge of the relevant unit(s) shall make a good faith effort to inform personnel who might be interested in such a project.

The Research Support Office and the Office of the Vice President for Research maintain a database of persons who have expressed an interest in given activities and furnish to each of these persons announcements of subsequent opportunities.

University Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action/ADA policy governs employment practices in the administration of agreements in other countries. The University of Arizona Advisory Committee on Affirmative Action has jurisdiction over hiring for such contracts, agreements, and grants involving the University and parties in other countries. At the time of signing of an agreement, contract, or grant document with a foreign agency, whether governmental or private, all signatories or their representatives must be given a copy of the EEO/AA ADA statement. (See Section 2.01.) Departments, schools, colleges, or other units must monitor compliance and report any violations to the Affirmative Action Advisory Committee.
