Reporting Significant Financial Conflict of Interest When Applying for Grants
January 28, 2022
To all faculty and staff who apply for or received external funding:
To meet federal funding requirements, ISU requires every person who applies for external funds to disclose any significant financial conflicts of interest they might have with the funder to which they are applying, at the time of application. This occurs when you complete the cover page of the Cayuse system, the proposal routing system used by ISU.
ISU requires anyone receiving an award to complete the Conflict of Interest training on the CITI system before an index will be set up so that you can spend funds. Certain federal agencies require that this training be renewed every four years and you will be contacted if this is the case. Otherwise, once you take the training you will not need to renew.
Please contact Deb Easterly, Assistant VP for Research if you have any questions, firstname.lastname@example.org, or ext. 2618.
