The Individual Financial Conflict of Interest in Research policy (Policy #2006-01) requires submission of an annual financial disclosure and revision to the disclosure throughout the year within 30-days of the acquisition or discovery of a new Significant Financial Interest (SFI). In 2018, the Office of the Vice President for Research, Research Compliance Services, transitioned the annual financial disclosure electronic submission process to a new vendor platform, InfoEd Financial Interests [FCOI]. An announcement was circulated on April 25, 2018 inviting some individuals to submit a financial disclosure in the new InfoEd FCOI system. Individuals at UConn Health who are subject to the Individual, Clinical, and/or Institutional policies, which require Investigators, Clinical Practitioners, and certain identified Institutional/Covered Officials to disclose significant financial interests (SFIs) related to their institutional responsibilities must now use the new InfoEd FCOI system for financial disclosures.
