Additional Contact Information

There are many disclosure and COI stakeholders across the university. The RCOI program will connect you with the applicable stakeholder, as needed.

  • Faculty should review OSP’s website, which outlines the current requirements for disclosing to certain federal sponsors, and contact their pre-award associate with questions.
  • Contact Procurement at for questions about owning or working for a company related to university purchasing.
  • Contact the Office of Export and Secure Research Compliance for questions about international entity collaborations.
  • Salaried staff must disclose additional employment outside of the Disclosure and Management System. Staff should review Policy 4070 and contact their supervisors/HR for questions about additional employment disclosure.
