Grantees will also find guidance on how to report fraud, waste, and abuse to CPRIT using Red Flag Reporting.

CPRIT Grant Management System

CPRIT utilizes an online grants management system that allows you to correspond with staff, manage budget information, submit reimbursement requests and required reports, manage grant contacts and review and accept contracts and contract amendments.

Rules and Statutes

State law requires agencies to use a rulemaking process, which includes an opportunity for the public to comment on proposed rules and rule changes before the agency adopts the final rule. When CPRIT proposes a new administrative rule or a change to an existing administrative rule, it must do so through a rulemaking project. The rulemaking project, which CPRIT announces in the Texas Register, gives the public advance notice of the proposed rule so that interested persons may decide whether they wish to comment on the proposal.

Current Rulemaking Project

At its February 21st, meeting, the Oversight Committee approved the release of proposed changes to existing agency rules in Chapters 701 and 703.

The proposed amendment to Chapter 701 adds “Tranche” to the agency’s list of defined terms in Section 701.3. “Tranche” refers to the portion of total Grant Award funds that is released to a Grant Recipient upon the Grant Recipient’s successful completion of predefined milestones or adherence to specific timelines as outlined in the Grant Contract. The remaining proposed changes capitalize the term “Tranche” where it already appears in Chapter 703.

Written comments may be submitted through April 22nd, to CPRIT’s Deputy Executive Officer and General Counsel, Kristen Doyle, by fax (512/475-2563); by email (; or by mail to the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas, P.O. Box 12097, ATTN: Rulemaking Project, Austin, Texas, 78711.

The Oversight Committee expects to consider a final order that reflects the comments received on the proposed rule and any recommended changes at their meeting on May 15th.

Recently Adopted Rule Changes

At its November 15, 2023, meeting, the Oversight Committee approved the final adoption of recent changes to Section 701.25 that were initially presented at the August 16 meeting. The amendment expands CPRIT’s electronic signature policy to include Grant Applicants.

Beginning on December 7, 2023, Texas Administrative Code Chapter 701 will reflect the recent rule amendments, which are also available here (CPRIT Adopted Rule Chapter 701.25).

Additional Resources

Policies and Procedures Guide

The Policies and Procedures Guide is made available for individuals and organizations interested in the CPRIT cancer research and prevention funding award program. It provides the framework for the review, award, implementation, and monitoring of CPRIT-funded research and prevention grant awards, as well as information on the rules and requirements that applicants and recipients of CPRIT grant awards must follow


CPRIT’s administrative rule § 703.22 requires all grantees to complete an annual compliance training by December 31 of each year. The Authorized Signing Official (ASO) and at least one other individual from each organization must attend the annual compliance training; however, we encourage all staff who use CPRIT’s grants management system to participate in this training.
