Conflict of Interest Disclosure Procedure

PROCEDURE STATEMENT:

Log in to the Conflict of Interest (COI) Disclosure webform

  • The form describes the different categories of significant financial interest (SFIs) that are required to be disclosed. A table of examples below is provided as a reference. Please know this is not an all inclusive reference, rather, just few examples for illustrative purposes.
  • If answering ‘Yes’ to any of the listed questions, a pull down menu of information required will show. Please provide enough detail to facilitate its assessment.
  • COI web forms will be automatically routed to the chair or direct supervisor and the dean for review and approval.

Faculty and professional staff must complete a new COI disclosure every year, even when they do not have any SFI to disclose. COI disclosures must be submitted, via web form, on an annual basis or within 30 days of any change to previous disclosures. Please click on the link below, and login using your UDNet ID and password. If the link does not take you directly to the form, look for “Conflict of Interest Disclosure Form” under the tab “Blanks.”
