Export Server

The Office of Export and Secure Research Compliance now provides a server that allows project personnel working under a Technology Control Plan to collaborate and store project files.  This server, COMPASS, also allows for external transmission of documents to sponsors. All downloads on this page are protected with Virginia Tech's CAS login.

For any assistance, or to request access to this service, please send an email to exporthelp@vt.edu with your request.
