Throughout the year individuals will have the ability to proactively disclose their outside activities of the Health Science Center and requests for approval of External Employment, Consulting, Board Membership, or Related Activities submit such requests via iDisclose.  

Once an individual has submitted their request, the COI Manager will receive the submission, review and forward to the appropriate department. If it is deemed as a Prior Approval (Requests for approval of External Employment, Consulting, Board Membership, or Related Activities) the department/division must route the request to the universities Chief Financial Officer (CFO).  If the submission is not identified as a Prior Approval, the department/division has the final approval.
