Investigator Financial Disclosure Requirements (Non-PHS funded)
All employees planning to act as investigators must disclose significant business or financial interests, including interests of their spouses, dependent relatives or household members, by October 1 of each year, and annually thereafter. Investigators should provide updates throughout the year as necessary to the Office of the Vice President for Research.
"Investigator" is defined as the PI, co-PI and any other person at Texas Tech University (TTU), TTU subgrantees, contractors or collaborators who are responsible for the design, conduct or reporting of research or educational activities that are funded or proposed for funding by an external entity.

How Do I Disclose My Financial interests?
All forms (those reporting no significant business or financial interests as well as those reporting significant business or financial interests) should be either completed in hard copy and forwarded to the associate vice president for research-research integrity using the instructions on the forms; or completed and submitted via the secure online questionnaire.
In order to streamline the financial disclosure procedure, the OVPR has created a secure online disclosure site available via an eRaider-authenticated link. Disclose using the secure online disclosure site and follow the prompts to complete and submit the required disclosure documents. Electronic Financial Disclosure>>
