Conflict of Interest:
Policy and Procedure
Angelo State University’s policy and procedure applies to all faculty and staff who serve as the principal investigator, project director, or other senior/key personnel responsible for the development and conduct of a sponsored project.
What do I have to report?
In short, you must report any significant financial interests that might reasonably appear to be affected by your institutional responsibilities. Specific details regarding the types of interest and dollar thresholds are outlined in ASU’s Operating Policy 56.08.
How often do I have to report?
Upon submitting a proposal for an externally sponsored grant/cooperative agreement/contract, once a sponsored project has been awarded, and once a year thereafter. Additionally, if you gain a significant financial interest during the course of the year, you must report the new interest within 30 days of acquiring it.
How often do I have to attend training?
For individuals working on projects funded by the Public Health Service (PHS) or the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT), training must be completed once every four years or whenever the policy is revised, whichever comes first. Online training is available through ASU’s subscription to the CITI Program. Individuals needing to complete training should e-mail the Office of Sponsored Projects for more details on accessing the online course.
