Lawrence Campus Conflict of Interest disclosures are reviewed by a representative advisory committee ("Conflict of Interest Committee") which makes a recommendation to the Vice Chancellor for Research and the Provost about the management of a conflict situation.
The Conflict of Interest Committee will consist of five faculty and unclassified staff members; a non-KU affiliate member; and ex officio non-voting members from the offices of the Provost, the Vice Chancellor for Research, and the Human Subjects Committee. Voting members are appointed by the Vice Chancellor for Research and serve rotating three-year terms. The Conflict of Interest Committee is not a policy making body, but can make policy recommendations.
Committee members or designated staff review each Conflict of Interest Disclosure submitted and make recommendations as to whether an actual or perceived conflict of interest exists. The Conflict of Interest Committee may request additional information as necessary.
Conflict of Interest Committee recommendations are forwarded to the Vice Chancellor for Research and the Provost for final approval of the disposition of each potential conflict of interest situation. All information provided to the Conflict of Interest Committee will be maintained in strict confidence.
