New requirements for disclosure of Significant Financial Interests associated with University Responsibilities by Investigators on proposals submitted to and awards funded by NIH and other Public Health Service agencies, and for management and reporting of resulting financial conflicts of interest are in effect beginning on Friday, August 24, 2012. Purdue’s Policy on Individual Financial Conflicts of Interest (Policy III.B.2) has been revised to address these new requirements.
The full text of the new regulation titled “Responsibility of Applicants for Promoting Objectivity in Research for which Public Health Service Funding is Sought and Responsible Prospective Contractors,” which was published in the Federal Register (Vol. 76, No. 165, August 25, 2011), is available via a link from the NIH Conflict of Interest homepage (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/policy/coi/index.htm).

Links to a summary of the requirements of the new regulation and to NIH’s FAQs are also available on the NIH Conflict of Interest homepage.
