Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) Access Request

Researchers involved in secure research, especially with contracts regarding CUI data, need accounts and/or resources in the CUI enclaves, either based in AWS or on-premises.  A request for these services will be required to be filled out with approval by the Director for Export Controls or authorized proxy.  A security review will also be performed.  This ensures that the request is in line with the project’s ITC as well with compliance requirements.  The person requesting access or services will receive notice of whether or not the access and or request for services has been granted once it has been reviewed and approved.
