During Annual Reporting, the Conflict of Interest Office (COI) reviews all disclosures submitted in the report. At times, additional information may be required in order for the COI office to accurately review the information provided by a HSC faculty or staff member. In this case, a disclosure in a report may be returned to the discloser or the entire report, if there is more than 1 dislcosure requiring edits.
