Kansas Board of Regents policy requires faculty and unclassified staff of Regents institutions to file a conflict of interest report upon employment and at least annually thereafter. In addition, federal policies require assurances that all investigators on a research project are in compliance with institutional conflict of interest reporting procedures. Conflict of interest reporting is, in most instances, completed via electronic submission in the eCompliance system. Read below for training and support or link directly to

Reporting Methods: eCompliance and Otherwise

  • If you are a KUMC faculty or staff member, then you should already have an account in eCompliance. You can access the system at Log in using your KUMC username and password.
  • If you are a KUMC student, then you should already have an account in eCompliance; however, you may need your account enabled by the system administrator if you have not served on previous studies. Please ask a study team member or instructor to contact for assistance.
  • Otherwise, if you are an individual affiliated with research through KUMC, but not an employee or student at the University, an account may need to be created on your behalf. Please contact the home department of the PI (principal investigator) of the study. The department may use the Account Requestor List to identify the appropriate individual if not already known.  Account Requestors, please see guide for reference. Network account request user guide.
    For those individuals who will have limited interaction with the KUMC research enterprise, you may be able to complete COI via an off-line form. Contact the COI office to discuss this option.

If you do not receive an e-mail with the link to your Annual COI certification, please contact the COI Office. 

Ad hoc/Update Report
In addition to annual reporting, faculty and staff must complete an ad hoc update to their disclosure report within 30 days if their financial relationships change during the fiscal year.
