Conflict of Interest
Effective August 24, 2012, the Public Health Service (PHS) established new regulations regarding financial conflict of interest. VSU's conflict of interest policy has subsequently changed to comply with the new regulations.
All faculty, staff, and students participating in any funded research project will need to be familiar with VSU's policies, which include mandatory training, disclosure of significant financial interests, and public accessibility to a researcher's financial conflict of interest. Links to Valdosta State University's Conflict of Interest Policy and Procedures, the Financial Conflict of Interest Disclosure Statement, the CITI online training course, and identified financial conflicts of interest can be found below.
Financial Conflict of Interest forms MUST be completed and submitted no later than January 31 of each year.
