How often do I need to update by disclosure?

  • Within 30 days of Acquiring a New Interest: New significant financial interests and significant personal interests should be disclosed to the Office for Responsible Outside Interests within 30 days of acquiring a new interest by completing a new disclosure form.
  • Annually: Disclosure forms are required to be re-certified annually between June 1st and June 30th of every year even if the investigator has nothing new to report.

Why are IRB protocols on my disclosure when I am no longer involved in the project? How do I get rid of them?

 

If an investigator is no longer involved in an IRB protocol then the PI must contact the IRB office to update the list of personnel on the project.  Once the list is updated by the PI, it will take a few days for the names to update in the system so a few more reminder emails may still get sent while the update is happening.

Where can I go to find out who has completed the conflict of interest requirements?

UAccess Analytics houses the Conflict of Interest Dashboard.  You can use this site to review who has completed the conflict of interest training and disclosure requirements and to see if there are outstanding requirements that an individual needs to complete.

What if I don't have anything to disclose?

You still need to complete the required training and disclosure requirements even if you have no outside interests that meet the definition of a significant financial interest or a significant personal interest as described above. In this case, you will simply certify that you have no outside interests to report on the form and submit the form.
