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.

Annual COI Certifications are created in eCompliance as new faculty and unclassified professional staff join the KUMC community. These new KUMC personnel will be notified of their COI certification's availability in a system-generated email from eCompliance@ku.edu with a direct link to their specific certifications. The KUMC annual reporting window takes place for current faculty, staff and research affiliates starting in late August/early September. Email notifications will be sent during this time. To login, please use your KUMC network username and password. 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. To update your disclosures throughout the year, use the Create "Update Certification" button in your COI Inbox in the eCompliance reporting system at https://ecompliance.ku.edu
