Reminder: COI Materials Due Ten Days Before Committee Meeting

The faculty Conflict of Interest Committee meets monthly, except in August, to review all positive financial disclosures related to research gifts, grants, contracts, cooperative agreements, MTAs and human subjects protocols.

In order for a disclosure case to be placed on the agenda for any monthly meeting, all materials required for review must be received by Jyl Baldwin no later than ten working days prior to the published meeting date. Materials required for Committee review may include items requested specifically after initial review of positive financial disclosure packets, such as copies of consulting agreements.

The lead time of ten working days is critical for preparation and distribution of case materials to the members of the COI Committee.
