Investigator Financial Disclosure

Federal regulations require that institutions have policies and procedures in place to ensure that employees disclose any significant financial interests that may represent an actual or potential conflict of interest in relationship to externally sponsored projects.

Texas Tech University Operating Procedure 74.17 outlines the general university regulations and procedures regarding annual disclosure of significant business and financial interests as well as the identification of conflicts or potential conflicts of interest, which serve to protect the credibility and the integrity of the university's faculty and staff, as well as the institution, so that public trust and confidence in its sponsored activities are not compromised.

The Public Health Service (PHS) has made major changes in financial disclosure requirements for all investigators and personnel involved in PHS-funded projects (e.g. NIH). Faculty or other personnel who have applied or plan to apply for PHS funding must complete training and disclose business or financial interests before submitting proposals or receiving funds.
