Conflict of Interest

Financial Conflict of Interest, also referred to as FCOI or simply Conflict of Interest or COI, is an issue of rising concern with the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).  DHHS has revised its regulations and requires all institutions receiving DHHS funding to revise their institutional policies on the topic, as of August 24, 2012. 

Please see Radford University's Conflict of Interest Policy, as required to comply with current federal regulations, 42 CFR 50.603-50.607.

Also, please note that annually and every time a new financial interest is determined or acquired, a Financial Conflict of Interest Disclosure Certification Form must be completed and sent to the Sponsored Programs and Grants Management Office.

Please contact the Research Compliance Office or Sponsored Programs and Grants Management Office for more information, if desired.
