The Investigator Conflict of Interest certification question 1 in Coeus and on the Investigator Disclosures & Assurances Form has been modified.  The revised wording is noted below:

  • Have you filed a COI Reporting form within the last 12 months, as required by Brown's Conflict of Interest Policy for Officers of Instruction and Research AND is it up-to-date?

In addition, the print versions of the Investigator Certification forms have been updated as noted below:

  • Clarification of the term “Investigator”: "The project director or principal investigator and any other person, regardless of title or position (e.g. a full or part-time faculty member, staff member, student, trainee, collaborator, or consultant), who is responsible for the design, conduct, or reporting of sponsored research."

  • Added a Print Name Line to Forms

  • Updated Policy Links in Forms
