A. The commissioner shall maintain records of federal assurances, annual reports, and summary descriptions of research projects.

C. The commissioner shall arrange for printing and dissemination of copies of this chapter.

D. The commissioner may require that support for a project be terminated or suspended in the manner prescribed in applicable program requirements when the commissioner finds a covered entity has materially failed to comply with the terms of this chapter.

E. In making decisions about supporting or approving applications or proposals covered by this chapter, the commissioner may take into account, in addition to all other eligibility requirements and program criteria, factors such as whether the applicant has been subject to a termination or suspension under subsection D of this section and whether the applicant or the person who would direct or has directed the scientific and technical aspects of an activity has, in the judgment of the commissioner, materially failed to discharge responsibility for the protection of the rights and welfare of human subjects (whether or not the research was subject to federal regulation).
