The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) seeks comments on the Draft Interagency Guidance Framework for Considering the Exercise of March-In Rights, which sets out the factors that an agency may consider when deciding whether to exercise Bayh-Dole march-in rights. The information received will inform NIST and the Interagency Working Group for Bayh-Dole (IAWGBD) in developing a final framework document that may be used by a funding agency when making a march-in decision.

This panel seeks to answer what the new framework is while also debating the pros and cons. This FedSoc Forum aims for participants to have a better understanding of this proposed policy change, be able to assess the impact should it be enacted, and be motivated to actively engage in the ongoing debate.
