PRC Acknowledgement and Disclaimer for PRC Materials

We would like to let you know that in the terms and conditions of the notice of award from CDC’s Procurement and Grants Office, all communications produced under a CDC cooperative agreement must bear an acknowledgment and disclaimer, as appropriate. This requirement applies to Special Interest Projects as well. The award document recommends the following statements:

Purpose of Acknowledgement

We recommend additional standard wording for making reference to CDC and the PRC Program in printed materials, booklets, in presentations (including presentation announcements and slides) and on websites. A correct and complete acknowledgment will accomplish at least three things:

  1. Ensures the program is appropriately credited for work it supports.
  2. Helps the PRC office track research results in the published literature.
  3. Prevents misuse of identifiers, which reflects poorly on the program.

Cooperative Agreement Number

Please acknowledge the PRC Program by name and cooperative agreement number on all communications (such as presentations, websites, scientific posters and brochures) concerning Core, Special Interest and other-funded projects associated with the PRC. We recommend that even for research largely supported by other funders, the PRC Program be credited for that contribution to the project. Therefore, please acknowledge the PRC Program and the cooperative agreement in the list of supporters.
