Interim Conflicts of Interest & Commitment Policy

Pursuant to the authority established by Arizona Board of Regents Policy No. 1-201, et seq., and the University of Arizona's policy on University Policy-making, the following action is proposed:


SUMMARY: This policy incorporates five of the University's conflict of interest and commitment policies into one policy to alleviate confusion and contradictions. A single conflict of commitment policy will now be applicable to all University employees. The policy is approved on an interim basis to address immediate concerns while the substantive policy revisions are presented for stakeholder feedback and publication.

The Conflicts of Interest & Commitment Policy incorporates and replaces the following policies, which can be viewed at the links below:

  1. Conflict of Commitment Policy
  2. Conflict of Interest (UHAP) Policy
  3. Conflict of Interest in Purchasing Policy
  4. Individual Conflict of Interest in Research Policy
