CSUEB now has a policy that permits compensation in the form of an incentive for participants in human subjects research. Research participant incentives may be paid to current CSUEB students and people that are non-CSUEB students or employees. CSUEB employees may not be paid a research participant incentive. Student incentives are paid in the form of a credit of a student's University Student Account. Incentives for people that are not CSUEB students and employees may be paid in the form of a gift card. More information about human subjects research participant incentives can be found on the ORSP Policies Website.
National Science Foundation has released its Federal Register notice on Reporting Requirements Regarding Findings of SexualHarassment, Other Forms of Harassment, or Sexual Assault. NSF has developed a new award term and condition that will require grantee organizations to report findings of sexual harassment, or any other kind of harassment regarding a PI or co/PI or any other grant personnel. The award term and condition also will require the grantee to report the placement of the PI or co-PI on administrative leave relating to a harassment finding or investigation." https://www.nsf.gov/pubs/issuances/in144.jsp

Institutions are allowed to employ three provisions from the revised Common Rule (2018 requirements) (HHS 2018b).
Institutions that transition ongoing research studies to the 2018 requirements during the delay period must document and date their determination (HHS 2018b). The research that is transitioned must also fully comply with all of the 2018 requirements beginning on the general compliance date (21 January 2019).
The revised Common Rule requires that for any clinical trial conducted or supported by a Common Rule department or agency, one consent form be posted on a publicly available federal website within a specific time frame. The consent form must have been used in enrolling participants in order to satisfy this new provision.
At this time, two publicly available federal websites that will satisfy the consent form posting requirement, as required by the revised Common Rule, have been identified: ClinicalTrials.gov and a docket folder on Regulations.gov (Docket ID: HHS-OPHS-2018-0021). Additional federal websites that would satisfy the revised Common Rule’s clinical trial consent form posting requirement might be identified in the future.
