In adherence with the UNC System COI policy, NC State requires certain employees to report any conflicts of interest via an annual COI disclosure (which must be subsequently reviewed and appropriately managed, if necessary). The U.S. Public Health Service (PHS), the National Science Foundation (NSF) and other organizations that sponsor research also require their grantees to follow strict conflict of interest regulations.
For more information, such as who must complete a COI disclosure and whether you can submit a proposal without an approved COI disclosure, please visit COI Guidance.
Submitting a COI Disclosure in RED
The COI/NOI module of the RED system launched May 12, 2020, replacing NC State’s legacy COI and NOI systems. All new conflict of interest disclosures must now be submitted through RED. COI disclosures submitted and approved in the legacy system prior to May 12, 2020 will remain valid until their expiration date, and the legacy disclosure system will remain read-only accessible for reference, review and reporting purposes.
For instructions about how to use the COI/NOI module, visit go.ncsu.edu/red-coi-noi-training.
