REMINDER: Rollout of New Conflict of Interest/Commitment system

Friday, June 4, 2021

Implementing a New, Faster Conflict of Interest System

June 11 is the last day to submit Research Certifications and Annual Disclosures in the legacy COI Disclosure System.

Please note the following important dates in the implementation process:

  • June 11, 2021 - Last day to submit disclosures, research certifications, and COC Forms in the current system.
  • June 12 - 30, 2021 - Blackout period (No COI or COC system will be available for submissions.)
  • July 1, 2021 - eDisclosure available (For your first disclosure or certification in eDisclosure, you will need to disclose all entities, including those previously disclosed in the legacy COI Disclosure System.)

How will this affect you?

The new system is relevant to all University Administrators who have an Outside Interest and all University Investigators. Please visit the COI Webpage to learn how to disclose to the University whether you have any significant financial interests or significant personal interests that may be related to your research or institutional responsibilities. 


For more information about the implementation process, please visit RII’s New Systems Information webpage.

Please also note that beginning July 1, the Conflict of Interest Program will be called the Office for Responsible Outside Interests to more closely focus on the program’s goal: to align outside interests with the University’s mission to disseminate knowledge through teaching, research, and public service in a way that ensures transparency, integrity and public trust.

For questions or more information, contact the COI Program at coi@arizona.edu or at (520) 626-8266.
