Process for Accessing Military Critical Technical Data:
Harvard University’s Office of the Vice Provost for Research maintains an approved Military Critical Technical Agreement (Form DD2345) with the Joint Certification Program ("JCP"). The University Chief Research Compliance Officer serves as the University’s Data Custodian for the purposes of this approval. All DD2345 related questions and requests must be directed to OVPR. Always work with the OVPR to:
- Confirm your need for JCP certification
- Obtain Harvard’s JCP certification number for use on meeting/conference registration forms, etc.
- Establish a Technology Control Plan (TCP) for the receipt and management of any export controlled data or materials. An approved Technology Control Plan (TCP) is required for all JCP data, regardless of format, that will be accessed, developed, provided, used, or stored by or on behalf of the University or University personnel. A TCP is not required for meeting participation unless the participant will be retaining notes, conference proceedings, presentations, etc. from the meeting that require safeguarding.
Note: University faculty, staff, trainees, and students engaging in University supported activities are required to use our institutional certification rather than register as an individual.
