COI Disclosure Requirements Comparison
The University recognizes that outside financial interests can facilitate opportunities for innovation, collaboration, and support. A conflict of interest is a situation in which an investigator’s outside financial interest(s) or obligation(s) have the potential, whether real or perceived, to bias a research project or cause harm to human subjects participating in a research project. Federal, State, and University regulations and policies requiring financial disclosure and review were implemented to address those instances when the outside financial interests may bias or appear to bias the research. The chart below provides a comparison overview of the financial disclosure requirements.
Disclosing individuals must disclose their financial interests received within the 12 months prior to disclosure submission including the financial interests of his/her spouse/registered domestic partner, and/or dependent children. All positive disclosures must be approved prior to acceptance of the award or additional funding, to expenditure of funds.
