Controlled unclassified information requires controlled dissemination under a body of complex law and regulation. It is essential to understand if research information being received or generated is being classified as controlled unclassified information or if it is fundamental research to avoid the controlled information security concerns. Any controlled unclassified information is designated in categories and subcategories that allow awardees to evaluate whether the research information in a project is correctly designated as controlled unclassified information. The DFAR 252.204-7012 does not use the CUI designation but it does call for the cybersecurity controls under NIST SP 800-171 Revision 1. If the designation as controlled unclassified information does not appear to reasonably apply to the researchers' information, then an outline for developing a well-supported position that this research information is not controlled information under the listed categories can be helpful. When however, the information is controleld unclassified information, then use of practical process and procedures for assessing and implementing security needs should be employed.
