Disclosure Decision Tree Overview

Virginia Tech Policy 13010: Individual Conflicts of Interest and Commitment applies to all employees at the university.

This interactive decision tree is designed to assist you in determining if your outside activity or financial/personal interest should be disclosed to the university.

This tool should not take the place of guidance provided by the Office of Research Education and Administrative Compliance; hereafter referred to as the COI Office.

This tool will help with the most common scenarios that are presented at Virginia Tech, but cannot consider all possible circumstances that could be encountered; therefore, we encourage all employees who have further questions to contact our office.

This tool does not capture any identifiable information. This tool is not considered a disclosure of outside activities or potential/actual conflicts of interest. All disclosures should be completed through the Disclosure System.  

For questions regarding this tool, please contact Linda Bucy at lbucy@vt.edu.
