NEW CONFLICT OF INTEREST POLICY AS OF 8/23/12
As detailed in Dr. Stancel’s memo, DHHS recently issued new regulations and UT System has issued UTS175 related to conflicts of interest in research for which PHS funding is sought. Accordingly, UTHealth has modified its HOOP policy, effective 8/23/12. This new policy:
- Applies to all research, regardless of funding source.
- Requires that any employee responsible for the design, conduct, or reporting of research be considered a “Covered Individual” (CI) and comply with the policy and its requirements.
- Requires CIs to submit an Annual Financial Disclosure (AFD) statement.
- Applies to subcontracts from UTHealth and subcontracts to UTHealth.
OSP HOURS: Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
The Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP) is the central office for managing proposal submissions, contract negotiations, award acceptance, and research compliance and ethics at UTHealth. OSP offers assurance to the potential sponsor that time and cost commitments are appropriate and all compliance issues (human subjects, animal use, export controls, and conflicts of interest) are adequately addressed. All grant proposals and contracts must be reviewed by OSP. This internal review process is necessary to ensure that contracts and proposals concur with the mission of the University, and adhere to all applicable federal, state, and institutional policies and guidelines.
