Texas Health and Safety Code Chapter 102

Article III of Texas Constitution establishing CPRIT


Texas Administrative Code, Title 25, Chapters 701 – 703

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.
