If you HAVE NO personal Significant Financial Interests related to your Institutional Responsibilities to disclose, then answer No to the COI Screening Questionnaire question and certify your disclosure at the bottom of the page.

If you HAVE personal Significant Financial Interests related to your Institutional Responsibilities to disclose, then click answer Yes to the COI Screening Qustionnaire question. (The question will already indicate Yes if you have previously entered Financial Entities.) Certify your disclosure at the bottom of the page.

  • If you have never entered Financial Entity information, you will be prompted to enter each entity in which you have a personal Significant Financial Interest after you submit your disclosure. Click "submit" when you have finished entering information for each new entity.

  • If you already have an approved disclosure, you can add new entities in which you have a personal Significant Financial Interest by clicking the "new financial entity" button under the Disclosed Projects panel. Click "submit" when you have finished entering information for each new entity.

  • If an entity is no longer a personal Significant Financial Interest, click the "edit" button to the left of the entity. A new page will open, and you can click the "deactivate" button for the corresponding entity.

     

  • Click "submit" for each entity that you edit.

  • When you have finished adding information related to the entities you are required to report, certify and submit the disclosure.
