Once annual reporting has ended, the Conflict of Interest Manager will review submitted annual reports.
At the end of the review process, each department will receive a report of the prior year's reporting activity. When interactions are reported that have the appearance of a conflict of interest, the HSC Conflict of Interest Committee will provide additional review and make a determination as to whether a real or potential conflict exists.
As a reminder, these reports provide a retrospective accounting of an individual’s outside activities in the prior year. Because these activities have already taken place, should a department require an individual
to make changes to their outside activities, any adjustments should be for future activities.
Video will demonstrate how to view a list of all individuals required to submit a report and a walk-thru of how to view individuals that have submitted a report.
Information regarding how to view reporting activity in your department(s) will be displayed here.

Once a disclosure is submitted through the iDisclose system, it will be screened by the Conflict of Interest Manager and then sent for review to your Supervisor, Department Chair or Dean (or equivalent positions for non-faculty). The COI manager will also make determinations if the disclosure is identified as a Conflict of Commitment (COC), Conflict of Interest (COI), Prior Approval (PA - Request for Approval of External Employment, Consulting, Board Membership, or Related Activities) or requires a management plan (MP).
When interactions are reported that have the appearance of a conflict of interest, the HSC Conflict of Interest Committee will provide additional review and make a determination as to whether a real or potential conflict exists.
