To the Stony Brook Community:
I’ve been writing to you throughout the summer about the fact that the U.S. Public Health Service (PHS), which includes the National Institutes of Health (NIH), has revised their Financial Conflict of Interest (FCOI) Regulations. SBU’s University Policy (P209) has been revised accordingly, and will be posted and in compliance with the revised regulations as of its effective date, this Friday, August 24th. Details concerning the upcoming changes may be found on our new COI Webpage: http://www.stonybrook.edu/research/orc/coi-new-regulations.shtml#message-tab
In my previous 2 messages, I talked about the new FCOI training requirement, when to disclose, and what to disclose. Please review our Frequently Asked Questions webpage for details: http://www.stonybrook.edu/research/orc/coi-new-regulations.shtml#faq-tab):
Today’s message is being sent to inform you that we have added new questions and answers to our Frequently Asked Questions webpage. They are:
- What forms do I use to file the required disclosures?
- Where do I submit the required disclosure forms?
- What is the review process that takes place after I submit my disclosure forms?
- What happens if the COI Committee finds that one or more of my SFI’s constitute a FCOI?
FAQ’s will continue to be added to the COI webpage as often as needed to help our investigators navigate the new policy and procedures. We will do our best to answer any questions you may have and will be diligent in monitoring the process to ensure it is as facilitative and efficient as it can be.
On behalf of Dr. Hsiao, our Vice President for Research and Designated Institutional Official for Investigator COI, I thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience as we ‘go live’ with this new, complex regulation on Friday.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
