Disclosures for Sponsored Projects


ECU principal investigators (PIs,) (including Co-PIs), regardless of compensation, and all ECU project personnel, with the exception of any undergraduate students, who will receive compensation from the grant/contract on proposals for externally sponsored projects are required to submit a Project Specific COI Disclosure (PSD-COI) at time of proposal submission. There is a two-week grace period after submission for personnel to submit the disclosure. Regardless of submission date, impending/new awards require compliance with the PSD-COI requirement upon award notification and prior to award set up.  Personnel who obtain any new Significant Financial Interest (SFI) after initial PSD-COI submission must update their PSD-COI within thirty (30) days of acquiring the interest; this applies throughout the project’s lifecycle.
