FCOI training requirements, as specified under federal regulations and UConn policy, will be complete once an investigator has submitted a financial disclosure form within the InfoEd External Interests module.
All PHS-funded and DOE-funded investigators must complete the UConn FCOI training pursuant to PHS regulations 42 CFR 50.604(b)(1-3), DOE Interim COI policy, and institutional policy prior to engaging in PHS or DOE-funded research and at least every four (4) years thereafter as well as under the following circumstances (in the timeframes noted in parentheses):
- When the University’s FCOI policy changes such that investigator requirements are affected (within 60 days).
- When an investigator is new to the University (prior to engaging in PHS or DOE-funded research).
- When the University finds that an investigator is not in compliance with the Policy or a management plan, as applicable.
