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 at the time a proposal is submitted.
The Conflict of Interest reporting system has transitioned to a new online configuration, which is located here.
The major benefit of the new system is that it retains your information from year to year. Consequently, in upcoming years you may simply confirm that no changes have taken place since the previous disclosure (if indeed no changes have taken place), rather than filling out a new form. If changes have taken place in your financial relationships, you will be able to edit your form, rather than filling out an entire new form. Another benefit of the new system is that forms route electronically, so there's no longer a need to print and sign a hard copy of your form.
To login, individuals use their KUMC network username and password. Announcements will be distributed annually via e-mail (from the email@example.com email address) to all current faculty and unclassified staff to file an annual report in this system. In addition to annual reporting, faculty and staff must complete an ad hoc update to their disclosure report if their financial relationships change during the fiscal year.
For assistance using the new system, the Office of Research Integrity on the KU-Lawrence campus has produced user guides, which may be found here. For personal assistance, you may contact Tom Field at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 913-588-5121.
