Investigators Disclosed for Financial Conflicts of Interest

Have all investigators disclosed and been vetted for Financial Conflicts of Interest (fCOI)? 

  • Ensure that all those responsible for the design, conduct and reporting of the project, including international collaborators, submit a disclosure form and complete training in accordance with the conflict of interest procedures set by the PI’s school: http://vpr.harvard.edu/pages/financial-conflict-interest-policy.
  • Foreign collaborators on projects funded by NSF or one of the agencies following Public Health Service PHS rules (http://sites.nationalacademies.org/PGA/fdp/PGA_070596) must abide by the sponsor’s FCOI policies.  OSP/SPA will verify that the foreign institution has a PHS compliant FCOI policy or that they are willing to follow Harvard’s policy.
