Your disclosure is linked to any proposal you’ve submitted in Proposal Development while working with OSP.
If you have any questions specifically regarding COI, please point persons to the COI USER Guide, https://research.umbc.edu/files/2018/01/COI-USER-GUIDE-Steps-for-completing-the-Kuali-COI-financial-disclosure-01.11.2018-1.pdf.
Principal investigators departments are reminded that CITI COI training is required before any proposals submitted in Proposal Development (and Kuali COI). To see more information on this compliance training, go to https://research.umbc.edu/conflict-of-interest-training-2/
