The Academic Senate and Board of Trustees recently approved new updates to the University’s Conflict of Interest Policy 1-006 that went into effect on July 1, 2020. The COI Office in collaboration with Research Education is offering a series of Best Practices discussions to help educate employees of the new changes to the policy. Some of those changes include:
1) New financial disclosure requirements for faculty and staff.
2) New financial thresholds for determining conflicts of interests related to transactions (e.g., purchasing, sub-awards, licenses, contracts, etc.).
3) Updated definitions of employee responsibilities subject to COI review (Research, Scholarly or Educational Activities, Transactions).
4) New rules within the policy to describe the processes by which COI reviews are conducted for each area of work.
