The Public Health Service (PHS) has revised its policies regarding financial conflict of interest. Effective August 24, 2012, prior to proposal submission the principal investigator and any person who is responsible for the design, conduct or reporting of research funded by a PHS agency must have submitted a “Financial Interest Disclosure Form for PHS Investigators.” Additionally, prior to expenditure of funds on an award, online financial conflict of interest training must be completed.
