Approval Assistance

This page is intended to provide assistance to department heads, deans and administrators in the approval process. Below are two helpful links. The first provides guidelines for how to examine the cases in which faculty note that there is a conflict of interest or time commitment. The second provides a few examples of the types of activities that would require a management plan. 

In addition, in the box to the right, there is a link to a self-paced training on all aspects of the Conflict of Interest and Time Commitment forms and processes. It provides helpful information on how to complete the relevant forms, as well as the role of the Supervisor in reviewing the forms. There are a number of case examples in the training that hopefully clarify key decisions. Supervisors and employees are strongly encouraged to view the training each year.

Declaration of Conflict of Interest and Time Commitment Forms

In order to comply with federal regulations and Board of Regents (BOR) policy, Kansas State University (KSU) requires all unclassified faculty and staff with 100% time appointments to annually file Annual Declaration and Disclosure. Faculty and unclassified staff members who hold fractional appointments who have potential or possible conflicts of time or conflicts or interest are also required to file disclosure forms.
