Conflicts of Interest Disclosure
Coming soon to UNT is a new COI eDisclosure system and process for completing annual disclosures. The GRAMS COI eDisclosure system streamlines the disclosure process for potential conflicts of interest and integrates annual disclosure data with related research certifications to ensure transparency and track compliance.
The new system will be available to VPs, AVPs, and Deans beginning September 2022 for all COI eDisclosures. See how easy submitting your disclosure will be by viewing the COI System Navigational Tutorial.

What is a conflict of interest?
A conflict of interest is a situation in which a personal interest may compromise or bias an employee’s professional judgment and objectivity when performing research or making decisions on behalf of the university. The disclosure is to be completed annually by all employees who receive the invite link, either confirming personal interests that require disclosure or declaring there are not any personal interests to disclose. Researchers, please refer to COI Research for more information.
It’s important that we work together to discuss and resolve conflicts of interest and potential conflicts. Oftentimes, when an individual discloses a potential conflict, there are ways we can collaborate to ensure we address the conflict in a way that protects both parties.
