All proposals for external funding are submitted under the auspices of the University and must be approved by the appropriate chair/department head and dean. This form is to be completed and returned to the Grants Office BEFORE a proposal is submitted for funding.
The purpose of this form is to ensure all investigators provide assurance that they will maintain compliance with applicable laws, regulations, policies and procedures, as well as to exercise integrity in all aspects of the project.
In an effort to ensure EWU maintains integrity in all research related activities and to comply with federal and state regulations as well as university policies and procedures, all investigators are responsible for disclosing any potential conflicts of interest that may impact the objectivity of research.
Re-certification is required each year for the life of an awarded project as well as any time when a potential conflict arises.
Financial Conflict of Interest training may be required based on funding source.
