    NCURA Live Webinar- Rules & Regulations: Where Does it Say We Have to Do That?


    Time: 1:00pm - 4:30pm
    Location: Hatteras Ballroom, Talley Student Union, 2610 Cates Ave, Raleigh, NC 27606

    Description:

    Please join us for the NCURA Live Webinar Rules and Regulations: Where Does It Say We Have To Do That?

    Federal regulations often drive our institutional policies, particularly when it comes to the management of federal awards. But to what extent are our institution’s policies/ procedures required by federal regulation versus the institution choosing to go beyond what regulation may require? Are these choices deliberate, the result of a corrective action plan, a best practice of peer institutions, or simply institutional culture? Can you respond confidently when one of your researchers asks the question “where does it say we have to do that?”

    This workshop will examine a variety of regulations that impact the day-to-day management of federal awards with the goal of helping participants answer these questions, and to better understand where regulations end and institutional policies begin. The workshop will cover essential federal award requirements, primarily drawing upon the Uniform Guidance, but with some references to the Federal Acquisition Regulation to demonstrate how federal requirements can impact an award differently based on whether it’s a grant or a contract.

    Learning Objectives

    • Determine the source (and interpretation) of federal regulation driving the policy.
    • Identify the “go to” resources used by Research Administrators to benchmark their University alongside other institutional “best” practices.
    • Articulate an answer and the rationale in language faculty members can understand when they ask the question “where does it say we have to do that and what does it mean?”
    • Engage and share among colleagues the various ways to implement requirements and best practices with continued focus on reducing administrative burden.

In addition to promoting data science at NC State, our aim is to also spur interdisciplinary collaboration through a series of networking events, following the talks, where faculty and researchers from across campus, and more importantly across disciplines, can meet and engage with each other as well as with the larger data science community within the Triangle. Further, one RED Talk per semester will also include additional activities to promote existing research on campus and cultivate new interdisciplinary approaches.

    Abstract: For the first time in history, more than half of the world’s population lives in urban areas; in just a few more decades, the world’s population will exceed 9 billion, 70 percent of whom will live in cities. Enabling those cities to deliver services effectively, efficiently, and sustainably while keeping their citizens safe, healthy, prosperous, and well-informed will be among the most important undertakings in this century. I will review how work on data acquisition, integration and analysis at NYU’s Center for Urban Science and Progress is leading to a better understanding (and hence improvement) of urban systems. Novel analyses of persistent synoptic imagery will be an important part of the story.
