Statement of Economic Interests (700-U) Form Revised for 2019

The State of California has issued a revised 700-U Statement of Economic Interests for Principal Investigators for immediate use. The revised form, dated 2018/2019, is available on the Conflict of Interest Committee website and is the only version that will now be accepted. The form and requirements are the same as the previous 2018 version, except for an increase in the limit for gifts of travel. Gifts of travel may be subject to a $470 gift limit in 2018. This gift limit has increased from $470 to $500 in 2019 and 2020. Please contact Alaisha Hellman (amhellman@berkeley.edu, 510/642-0122) with any questions.

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.
