A new disclosure process for conflicts of interest (COI) and conflicts of commitment (COC) takes effect Sept. 13. The new process will be facilitated in NuRamp and replaces the old Interest and Outside Activity Reporting Form, or IOARF, process in NUgrant. Several changes and improvements have been made to this process, which include:  

To minimize disruption to campus during the rollout, NUgrant users with an IOARF – whether the form is under review or already approved – will have their information automatically moved to NuRamp, with availability starting Sept. 13. Personnel will receive notifications and reminders for completion of their annual disclosure according to previous expiration dates in NUgrant. New users who have not completed an IOARF previously, and need to complete one, should start a new disclosure form in NuRamp beginning Sept. 13.   

To assist with this transition and educate the campus community, Research Compliance Services has published new guidance information on multiple COI topics. The COI A-Z Guidance webpage covers many useful topics. Some examples are:
