The Final Rule: Implementing New Policies for Financial Conflict of Interest at the University of Central Florida
Adkins, Andrea; McClellan, Tammie; Miner, John
Research Management Review, v19 n2 2013
Academic institutions modified their financial conflict of interest policies (FCOI) in response to the Public Health Service's (PHS) 2011 revised regulations (42 CFR 50 Subpart F) on "Responsibility of Applicants for Promoting Objectivity in Research and Responsible Prospective Contractors" (45 CFR 94), which were to go into effect on August 24, 2012. Using the National Institutes of Health checklist for the 2011 revised FCOI policy development as a guide, many institutions began to prepare for compliance in 2011 following passage of the final rule (National Institutes of Health, 2012). However, changes to conflict of interest policies and procedures began at the University of Central Florida (UCF) in 2009, providing a smoother implementation in 2012 of the revised federal regulations. UCF's Office of Research and Commercialization, University Compliance and Ethics Office, Office of Faculty Relations, and Office of General Counsel joined in the effort to update the university's policies and procedures concerning financial conflict of interest and conflict of commitment to ensure compliance with federal regulations, state statutes, and university regulations. This case study describes how UCF created a new conflict of interest policy, created new institutional procedures, and used its on-line systems to ease the implementation of the revised PHS regulations.
