Various funding agencies (e.g., PHS, PHS-like, DOE) require investigators be trained about the federal, state, and University regulations on Conflict of Interest and Conflict of Commitment.
COI Training Requirement
For the convenience of the NC State community, the required COI training is integrated into the COI Disclosure form. When you file a COI Disclosure in the RED system, you will be asked to certify your understanding of the following:
- NC State REG 01.25.01 – Conflicts of Interest and Conflicts of Commitment
- The disclosure responsibilities of covered individuals/investigators and the University’s responsibility to review, identify, and manage financial conflicts of interest
- Sponsor-specific requirements and other COI reporting requirements
As an additional resource, all covered individuals/investigators are encouraged to take NC State’s Financial Conflict of Interest (FCOI) training to ensure the design, conduct, or reporting of sponsored research will not be biased by any FCOI.
To access the FCOI training, you must register through REPORTER. Once in REPORTER, click “Register Now” > “Proceed” > “Access Online Content.”
