State of California law requires disclosure of financial interest in the sponsor of a research project whether as the prime recipient or as a subcontractor; the donor of a research gift; and, under certain circumstances, the provider of materials under a Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) when that sponsor, donor, or provider is a non-governmental source.

For research projects, the Statement of Economic Interests for Principal Investigators (Form 700-U) should accompany the proposal to the Sponsored Projects Office or the Industry Alliances Office.

  • In Phoebe, the 700-U should be added as an attachment. In addition, the paper 700-U, with original, ink signature and date, must be sent or delivered to SPO after it is uploaded to Phoebe. Please reference the Phoebe proposal number in the top, right-hand corner of the form.

For MTAs, the Form 700-U should accompany the Material Transfer Agreement Review Form to the Industry Alliances Office.

For gifts, the Form 700-U must be submitted to the COI Office when a gift is received and be accompanied by any documentation associated with the gift, i.e., donor correspondence, copy of the gift check, gift acceptance forms, departmental acceptance letter, and the like.
