This year, the requirements for reporting travel have changed. If an individual receives a travel payment for travel occurring on or after January 1, 2016, which is reportable as a gift, he or she must disclose the travel destination.

State of California law requires disclosure of financial interest in the sponsor of a research project; the donor of a research gift; and, under certain circumstances, the provider of materials under a Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) when that sponsor, donor, or provider is a non-governmental source. Please see State of California Financial Disclosure for more information.
