Sec. 93.109 Coordination with other agencies.
(a) When more than one agency of the Federal government has
jurisdiction of the subject misconduct allegation, HHS will cooperate in
designating a lead agency to coordinate the response of the agencies to
the allegation. Where HHS is not the lead agency, it may, in
consultation with the lead agency, take appropriate action to protect
the health and safety of the public, promote the integrity of the PHS
supported research and research process and conserve public funds.
(b) In cases involving more than one agency, HHS may refer to
evidence or reports developed by that agency if HHS determines that the
evidence or reports will assist in resolving HHS issues. In appropriate
cases, HHS will seek to resolve allegations jointly with the other
agency or agencies.
