Brown’s Annual Conflict of Interest (COI) cycle for faculty, instructors, post-docs, and researchers commenced on Thursday, February 7, 2019, and runs through Monday, March 11, 2019.


Brown’s COI Policy for Officers for Instruction and Research includes details regarding who is required to complete and submit an Annual COI Assurance form.


As in years past, individuals who are required to submit the Annual COI Assurance form will, at the start of the annual cycle, receive an email from Vice President for Research Jill Pipher with information about the disclosure process and a link to the electronic research administration system. Periodic reminders and notices will be sent to those with un-submitted forms. The annual cycle closes on March 11, 2019.


Brown’s annual COI reporting is for Calendar Year (CY) 2018, and is submitted through Brown’s electronic research administration system, InfoEd. Any data entered by end users during the last annual cycle and throughout the past year has been copied into their 2018 Annual COI Assurance form for them to update as appropriate.


Job aids are available to help navigate the submission process.  COI FAQs are also posted to assist with any reporting questions. Lastly, questions may be directed to Juliane Blyth (3-3295) and Rebecca Haworth (3-2041) in the Office of Research Integrity.
