Financial Conflict of Interest
Federal regulations (42 CFR Part 50 Subpart F) aim to promote objectivity in research by establishing standards that provide a reasonable expectation that the design, conduct, and reporting of research funded by federal grants will be free from bias resulting from Investigator financial conflicts of interest.
Each SSU investigator who seeks to conduct research funded under applicable agencies (HHS, NSF, etc.) must:
- Prior to submission of a proposal to the funding agency, submit the FCOI disclosure form to OSRA along with the Approval Form
- Complete required training on FCOI and submit a certificate of completion to OSRA, either:
- Each year of funding, submit updated FCOI disclosure form to OSRA.
