Forms and Written Statements
All individuals working as research team members who have access to data in identifiable form should be provided with a copy of 28 CFR, Part 22, “Protection of Confidentiality of Identifiable Research” (PDF 92.1 kb). This includes the project director, program staff, independent consultants, and local evaluators. Having read these regulations, research team members should sign a confidentiality statement agreeing to comply with these regulations and all policies and procedures adopted in accordance with regulatory requirements. The local evaluator should also sign these statements and keep them within his or her own files. A sample confidentiality statement is included in appendix B (PDF 101 kb).
