A news release from the US Governmental Accountability Office on 13 May concerned with the risk that some of the 1.2 million foreign students who studied at US universities each year may “export” sensitive knowledge that they gain to their home countries. The GAO says that it found that guidance from the relevant government departments does not address issues most relevant to universities. The GAO makes 4 recommendations, including that State and Commerce should improve their export control guidance and outreach, which may help address gaps in university export control compliance practices. GAO also recommends that DOD take steps to ensure its officials consistently interpret export control regulations. State, Commerce, and DOD concurred with the recommendations.
