Financial Conflict of Interest (FCOI) and Other Support: Reminders

The purpose of this Guide Notice is two fold: (1) to remind the NIH extramural research community about the longstanding requirements provided in the financial conflict of interest (FCOI) regulation at 42 CFR Part 50 Subpart F, “Promoting Objectivity in Research” (FCOI regulation for grants and cooperative agreements). This requirement also is included in the NIH Grants Policy Statement (NIH GPS), Section 4.1.10, Financial Conflict of Interest, and serves as a term and condition of NIH grant awards. This Notice reminds the extramural applicants and recipient institutions of the requirements to develop a FCOI policy, to post it on their website and submit it to NIH, to ensure Investigator disclosure of both foreign and domestic Significant Financial Interests(SFI), to review Investigator SFIs, to determine if there is a FCOI that must be reported to NIH, and to train Investigators on FCOI requirements; and (2) to remind the NIH extramural research community of the requirement to submit complete and accurate Other Support information (NOT-OD-21-073) (NOT-OD-21-110).
