When you receive materials or data from an outside entity (whether purchased or otherwise acquired) there usually are no export control implications. However, your subsequent use or sharing of materials / data could involve export control issues.
Before you receive an item, determine if it is on the Commerce Control List (CCL) or subject to International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), so you can obtain appropriate licenses. Unless they are classified as EAR99 or consumer electronics in ECCNs 4A994 or 5D992, check with UB's export control office so they can help you clear materials / data before you receive them.
This process allows for all appropriate measures including a Technology Control Plan (TCP) or a license and avoids the unwitting violation of export regulations which could result in civil or criminal penalties.
