Start Supplemental Information
This collection of information supports NASA's term and condition regarding sexual harassment, other forms of harassment, and sexual assault. This term and condition requires recipient organizations to report to NASA any findings/determinations of sexual harassment, other forms of harassment, or sexual assault regarding a NASA funded PI or Co-I. The new term and condition will also require the recipient to report to NASA if the PI or Co-I is placed on administrative leave or if the recipient has imposed any administrative action on the PI or Co-I, or any determination or an investigation of an alleged violation of the recipient's policies or codes of conduct, statutes, regulations, or executive orders relating to sexual harassment, other forms of harassment, or sexual assault.
In reviewing harassment notifications pursuant to the term and condition, it will be necessary for the Agency to have complete information provided in a consistent manner. The information provided will be used by the Agency to assess the matters reported and to consult with the Authorized Organizational Representative (AOR), or designee of the reporting institution. Based on the results of this review and consultation, NASA may, if necessary, assert its programmatic stewardship responsibilities and oversight authority to initiate the substitution or removal of the PI or any co-PI, reduce the award funding amount, or where neither of those previous options is available or adequate, to suspend or terminate the award.
