report should contain a statement of reasons for the actions of the Standing Committee. A copy of its report, the panel report, and the written comments by the party investigated shall be forwarded to the provost and to the appropriate dean, who shall ensure that notification is provided to the appropriate persons outside the University.

Section 6. Coordination of Investigation with Other Institutions

Where any person currently or formerly associated with The University of Chicago has been found guilty of academic fraud for work done at another institution, the Standing Committee on Academic Fraud shall when appropriate form a panel to investigate whether any work done at The University of Chicago has been tainted by that fraud. The panel shall operate under the rules set out in Section 5 of these procedures and shall coordinate its investigations with those undertaken at any other institution.

Section 7. Rule-making Powers of the Standing Committee

Consistent with the rules set out above, the Standing Committee shall have at any time the power to supplement and clarify the applicable procedures.
