Financial Conflicts of Interest

Miami has updated its Management of Conflicts of Interest in Projects with External Funding to comply with current Public Health Service (PHS) and National Science Foundation (NSF) requirements. Adherence to this policy will enable you to be in compliance with PHS and NSF mandated requirements regarding Financial Conflicts of Interest (FCoI).

Please take note of the requirements below and be sure to complete both by their respective deadlines.

  1. Complete FCoI Disclosure for each federal grant submission prior to submission.
  2. Undertake training prior to opening award--the CITI COI – Public Health Service course meets this requirement.

If you have any questions regarding the FCOI policy, training steps, or disclosure information, please reach out to Amy Balk.
