DOD PROPOSES TO TIGHTEN RULES ON FOREIGN SCIENTISTS

http://www.fas.org/sgp/news/secrecy/2005/07/072205.html

The Department of Defense is proposing to tighten its contracting rules to restrict access by foreign nationals working in U.S. labs to information and technology that is export-controlled, a move that could wreak havoc in university research centers and elsewhere.

"Any access to export-controlled information or technology by a foreign national or a foreign person anywhere in the world, including the United States, is considered an export to the home country of the foreign national or foreign person," the proposed rule states. Accordingly, any such access must be restricted, or licensed, DoD contends.

"To comply," explained reporter Yudhijit Bhattacharjee in Science Magazine today, "universities and companies working on defense projects would not only need licenses to enable foreign nationals to participate in the research but would also need to protect export-controlled information through an 'access control plan' that includes 'unique badging requirements for foreign nationals' and 'segregated work areas'."

Rather than adopt such practices, some university researchers say, they would decline DoD contracts.

1. And the US continues to drive scientific talent abroad
and our technical and economic standing will continue to decline.

If national security made a nation great, we would all be speaking Albanian.

2. Well, all other issues aside, there goes any U.S. lead in tech.
There are not enough Americans entering science and engineering fields. We are dependent on foreign workers in all such fields. The DoD would soon become a DuD.
