Financial Conflict of Interest Policy for Sponsored Research Projects

The Federal government requires that the College establish and administer a financial conflict of interest and disclosure policy for investigators who conduct research funded by Federal grants. This standard is designed to ensure appropriate management of actual or potential conflicts of interest. To promote objectivity in research and to foster compliance with Federal regulations, Rollins requires investigators seeking research funding and those who have obtained research funding from PHS, NSF, or other Federal agencies to comply with the institutional policy on the disclosure of significant financial interests and the management and reporting of financial conflicts of interest.
