PHS Financial Conflict of Interest
Researchers, or any other project personnel, regardless of title or position, who are responsible for any part of the conduct, design, or reporting of research funded by Public Health Service (PHS) funds are required by federal regulations to submit annual FCOI disclosures, report reimbursed or sponsored travel, take FCOI training, and report any significant FCOI for review no later than at the time of application for PHS-funded research. PHS entities include National Institutes of Health, Food and Drug Administration, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Health Resources and Services Administration, and the Indian Health Service.
These required disclosures are in addition to the reporting required under Appendix S of the University Handbook in conjunction with your appointment. You also are required, under federal regulations and University policy, to update your annual disclosure within thirty days of acquiring a new significant financial interest.
