Our office works with different units within the University when an employee’s outside interests potentially conflict with their University roles and responsibilities. You can find more information regarding conflicts of interest by reading the Conflicts of Interest and Commitment policy.
Disclosure of potential conflicts of interest or conflicts of commitment is necessary to identify, manage, and/or eliminate these conflicts. The University has established an online disclosure form to collect relevant information related to conflicts of interest (but please read below to see if completion of another form may be required), conflicts of commitment, and related topics in accordance with state and federal regulations, and applicable University policies. More details about this process, including guidelines for disclosure reviewers and answers to Frequently Asked Questions, can be found on the University Compliance COI webpage.
State Conflict of Interest
In addition to completing the Kuali COIC disclosure form, you may also be required to sign and submit the University's State Conflict of Interest Disclosure Statement form.
For more information regarding the University’s State Conflict of Interest process please see the University Compliance State COI webpage or if you have questions regarding state conflicts of interest, please contact the University Compliance & Policy Office.
Research-Related Conflict of Interest
Federal law requires that, if you have responsibility for designing research, collecting research data, performing other substantive research activities, or reporting research, you must complete an annual disclosure form detailing any significant financial interests. Thereafter, any new significant financial interest must be disclosed through the same process within 30 days.
If you have any questions regarding research-related conflict of interest, please contact the University’s Office of Research Compliance.
