FISCAL YEAR 2016 RESEARCH CONFLICT OF INTEREST ANNUAL DISCLOSURE STATEMENT
September 30, 2015
 

To all UNTHSC Researchers:

Welcome to the new Fiscal Year 2016!

As you may recall, Federal regulations require the submission of an Annual Research Conflict of Interest (RCOI) Disclosure Statement. During the month of September, you will have the opportunity to complete and submit your required FY2016 Annual Disclosure Statement. Access to the required form is available at https://apps.unthsc.edu/rcoi. As usual, you will need to login with your EUID (ex. adc0050) and network password.

If you have already completed the RCOI Training, simply click on https://apps.unthsc.edu/rcoi to submit your annual disclosure statement.

If you have not already completed the RCOI Training, you will be prompted to complete that special RCOI Training prior to submitting your RCOI disclosure.

ONCE YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE RCOI TRAINING, PLEASE REMEMBER TO LOGIN TO https://apps.unthsc.edu/rcoi TO SUBMIT YOUR FY2016 ANNUAL DISCLOSURE STATEMENT. [Completing the training is only Step 1. . . you still need to do a disclosure.]

Detailed instructions for completing and submitting the required Annual Disclosure Statement can be found here. (https://www.unthsc.edu/research/wp-content/uploads/sites/21/RCOI_Disclosure_Instructions.pdf)

Who needs to complete an Annual Disclosure Statement? Anyone engaged in research at UNTHSC including, but not limited to, administrators, faculty, staff, post-doctoral fellows, students, interns, residents, collaborators, subcontractors or consultants whose institutional responsibilities include the design, conduct, or reporting of research, funded or proposed for funding.

In addition, researchers are required to submit an amended Disclosure Statement within 30 days of discovering or acquiring a new Significant Financial Interest or other potential conflict of interest. Again, all forms are submitted through the Research Conflict of Interest Disclosure site at https://apps.unthsc.edu/rcoi

Additional information regarding the UNTHSC Research Conflict of Interest Policy is available here. https://www.unthsc.edu/research/wp-content/uploads/sites/21/RCOI_Policy_11_19_13.pdf

If you have previously submitted a disclosure during the 2015 Fiscal Year and all of that information is unchanged, you will STILL HAVE TO re-indicate that information on your 2016 Annual Disclosure Statement. Your FY2015 Disclosure can be viewed using the Previous Disclosure tab.

For ANY questions about this process, including any log-in or disclosure/training questions please contact Susan Harlin in the Office of Research Compliance at 817-735-2742 or send her an email at susan.harlin@unthsc.edu

Thank you and we appreciate your patience and participation in this federally required process.
