Agencies/Organization Following PHS COI Regulations

Blue info iconCertain federal agencies require COI reviews of research and sponsored projects regardless of whether an disclosed outside activity has been identified as related to the project.

These federal agencies and other organizations utilize the Public Health Service (PHS) financial conflict of interest (FCOI) regulations as their COI policy.  This list may help you in determining outside interest disclosure and COI management requirements when one of these agencies sponsors your research, either directly or via subcontract.
