International Traffic in Arms Regulation:
The U.S. Department of State through the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) administers the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (22 CFR §§120-130), or "ITAR," which regulate items and information inherently military in design, purpose, or use. Referred to as "defense articles," such items are found on the U.S. Munitions List (USML). This term includes technical data recorded or stored in any physical form, models, mockups, or other items that reveal technical data directly relating to items designated in the USML. It does not include basic marketing information on function or purpose or general system descriptions.
Export Administration Regulations (EAR):
The U.S. Department of Commerce administers the Export Administration Regulations(15 CFR §§730-774), or "EAR," which regulate the export of "dual-use" items. These items include goods and related technology, including technical data and technical assistance, which are designed for commercial purposes, but which could have military applications, such as computers, aircraft, and pathogens.
The list of EAR-controlled items (the Commerce Control List, or "CCL") is published at 15 CFR §774, Supplement 1. An alphabetical list of CCL items is accessible at:
FEDERAL AND STATE PROGRAM ELIGIBILITY
Federal legal and regulatory requirements call for health care providers receiving federal health care funding (from Medicare, Medicaid, CHAMPUS) screen potential and current employees and contractors to assure that they are not excluded from federal health care programs or debarred from other federal programs.Individuals or contractors may be excluded for such reasons as convictions for patient abuse or neglect, fraud or kickbacks.The penalties for hiring or contracting with excluded individuals or entities include $10,000 for each item or service furnished by the excluded individual and may include paying three times the amount claimed for each item or service.Those most severe penalty would be exclusion of OHSU from participation in federal health care programs.The foregoing language covers this.For the federal government's commentary on the background and meaning of "excluded" and "debarred" contractor's, search on the Office of Inspector General List of Excluded Individuals/Entities (http://oig.hhs.gov/fraud/exclusions/exclusions_list.asp, and choose the Online Searchable Database) and the General Services Administration Excluded Parties List (http://epls.arnet.gov/, and choose Search-Current Exclusions, then >Advanced Search)
