Conflict of Interest for Research
A disclosure must be completed before submitting a proposal to an external funder, and prior to the university’s acceptance of the award or issuance of a purchase order, contract, or subcontract for the acquisition of goods and services. Further information about the OSP Conflict of Interest Policy may be found on page 18 of the OSPRI Policy Guide.
The Financial Conflict of Interest form shall be emailed to investigators and key personnel by Sponsored Programs. The form may also be requested by emailing Sponsored Programs. The disclosure form is submitted online using the individual's UCM Google Mail account.
The Director of Sponsored Programs will review disclosures of potential conflicts of interest and determine whether the disclosure should be referred to the University Research Council for resolution.
The University Research Council shall convene as necessary to consider disclosures of potential conflicts of interest as prescribed in the Faculty Guide Section IV.
In addition to the Financial Conflict of Interest disclosure required prior to submission for all Federal and Federal flow-thru money (except Department of Education) or other sponsors adopting the new FCOI regulations, CITI Training - Conflict of Interest may be required prior to submission of the proposal and every 4 years thereafter.
