Conflict of Interest at MSU
New Requirement for all Faculty and Academic Staff
MSU's Faculty/Academic Staff Conflict of Interest Policy requires that, beginning January 1, 2015, all MSU faculty and academic staff submit an annual disclosure of all significant financial interests related to their MSU responsibilities. This requirement has applied to investigators for Public Health Service (PHS) and National Science Foundation (NSF) since 2012.
In addition, Conflict of Interest training is required for investigators on PHS-funded projects. This training is highly recommended for all staff, as a means to be aware of the potential for conflict situations between work and personal interests.
