"What is considered 'outside of UA duties and responsibilities' if we are budgeted to for research, teaching, and service?"

Please work with your college to determine what is and is not considered to be part of your UArizona duties and responsibilities.  The following disclosure scenarios may be helpful:

  • An Investigator receives personal compensation or an honorarium of $5,000 or more for editing journal articles. In this instance, the editing work must be disclosed as a Significant Financial Interest for conflict of interest (COI) review even though it is part of the individual’s professional service requirement.  The Investigator would not need to submit a COC form for approval if the activity is part of their professional service.

 

  • An Investigator serves on the Scientific Advisory Board for a professional society but does not receive any remuneration.  The Investigator must disclose this board membership as a Significant Personal Interest for conflict of interest (COI) review.  The Investigator would not need to submit a COC form for approval if the activity is part of their professional service.

 

  • An Investigator receives an honorarium of $300 from a foreign funding agency to review research proposals. In this instance, the Investigator must disclose the review work as a Foreign Interest for conflict of interest (COI) even though the remuneration is less than $5,000 and the work may be part of the individual’s professional service.  The Investigator would not need to submit a COC form for approval if the activity is part of their professional service.
