W&M FINANCIAL CONFLICT OF INTEREST POLICY FOR SPONSORED PROGRAMS RECEIVING PHS FUNDING
PHS (Public Health Service) funded investigators must be aware of the regulations governing Financial Conflict of Interest programs at institutions that accept PHS research funds. The policy became effective 8/24/12. In order to ensure continued PHS funding, the College of William & Mary implemented procedures to ensure the College is in compliance with the regulation (42 CFR Part 50 Subpart F). The College's guidance for disclosing financial interests applies to all PI's who are involved in the design, conduct, and/or reporting of research funded through PHS.
W&M facilitates training by use of the CITI FCOI (Financial Conflict of Interest) training modules. Once an individual has completed the CITI training, the trainee will recieve an automated notification of competion of FCOI training and the program retains a log of training documentation.
Please be aware that if you already receive PHS funds, you must complete training immediately. Training is required for all "Investigators" meaning "the project director or principal investigator and any other person, regardless of title or position, who is responsible for the design, conduct, or reporting of research funded by the PHS, or proposed for such funding, which may include, for example, collaborators or consultants."
Training is required prior to engaging in research related to any PHS-funded grant and at least every four years, and immediately when any of the following conditions apply: 1) The institution revises its financial conflicts of interest policies or procedures in any manner that affects the requirements of the investigators; 2) a researcher is new to the institution; or 3) when a researcher is found to be out of compliance with the new regulations or with the institution's financial conflict of interest policy or management plan.
